I have hog houses in my garden for about 5 years and other than having a quick snooze they have never used the, that is until this year! I was checking one of the houses was clean the other day, as I also use it as a feeding station in the warmer months, and there was a hog curled up in the cardboard box, it has dragged moss, grass and leaves into the nest too. The thing is it was filthy so I had to carefully take the hog and cardboard box out whilst I cleaned it (good job I did as there were a few maghots and ticks in there). I then put everything back in place and hoped the hog would stay. It has (so far!!). Fingers crossed it stays and survives the winter.
