    I have noticed that there is a hog in my garage… I have 3 or 4 that visit each night for food and water but it’s the first time I have noticed one in my garage !
    I leave my garage door slighly open as I keep logs in there and want a good airflow.. I suspect he is in a pile of logs.
    My dilemma is in the winter I start removing the logs .. I dont know where he is.. should I try and find him and evict him before winter as I would hate to have to move him mid-winter if I disturbed him…
    Advice needed.. thank you.

    Hi laurabiding

    Are you sure the hog is actually nesting in the garage, or could it be just visiting to see if it can find any beetles, etc. round the woodpile? If you think he is staying in there, I would get a hog box and put it nearby with lots of materials that he could make a nest with, also nearby and hopes he moves in there.

    The trouble is, if he moves out, I suppose there is nothing to stop another one from moving in. If you disturb one, accidentally, it’s handy to have a spare hog box you could put it into – in those circumstances, with some nesting material already in there that the hog could burrow under.
