    I am trying to attract hedgehogs into my garden and have built a cosy house with a hedgehog size entrance.
    I have been putting a little pet food in the house to try and attract the hogs.
    I can see that something has been in and eaten the food but no sight of hedgehogs.
    The entrance is not big enough for cats etc but I don’t know if it maybe rats or mice.
    Without a night vision camera it’s difficult to know and I don’t want to feed the surplus rodent population.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Ninja1

    That’s brilliant that you have made a hog house!

    You might want to try a footprint tunnel. I have never used one myself, but they sound quite fun and you would be able to see what else is going into the box too.

    Further information and forward links:

    Good luck.


    The first sign I saw was leaves being pulled into the house, as well as the food being eaten that is.

    They tend to be quite messy eaters too, I’ve found . So if the food is being scattered about a bit that might be a clue to hogs having visited (as well as their dropping being left ) .
