    Hi antiguaannie

    Really all we can do is try to make our gardens as inviting for the hogs as possible and hope that they come back. You say you have a hog house. Make sure you have plenty of material near to the hog house that they can make a nest with. They like medium sized leaves, long grasses, etc. Maybe put a handful of material into the box to give them the idea, but most hogs prefer to build the rest of the nest themselves.

    More ideas to make your garden hog friendly:

    Also it’s important to leave water available for them, all day every day. Shallow but wide plant saucers are ideal for that.

    Don’t forget that some of the hogs will be beginning to think about hibernation now.

    Good luck, I hope you have some success.


    My hog has reappeared the last week he’s on his own at moment he comes into our side passage and tries to hide when we come out he’s very friendly he sits by his bowl waiting for his food glad he has come back

    Hi antiguaannie

    Great news that the hog is back! Sounds like a vote of approval! But be aware that the hog could disappear again – to hibernate – any time now. Although not all hogs choose to hibernate and if the hog there doesn’t, just keep offering food – and water of course. I have had non-hibernators here before and they continued to visit how ever cold it was.

    Good luck and happy hog watching.
