    Hi everyone.

    Only just joined. I’ve fed hedgehogs on and off over the years. Where I live now there is a problem with rats. I’ve had to modify my bird feeders to reduce seed etc. falling to the ground which attracted the rats. My neighbour called in the pest control. Any suggestions?


    Make sure any bait isn’t accessible by hedgehogs

    Hi JaneD

    Totally agree with Stef. Make sure the pest control person knows that there are hedgehogs around and that they take appropriate precautions to ensure the hogs can’t get to any bait. Bearing in mind that there may be hoglets around at the moment and that hogs can be surprisingly good climbers.

    It’s good that you adapted your bird feeders to stop any seed falling – it’s often bird food that attracts the rats in the first place rather than hedgehog food.
