    […] people think that if they put out a saucer of milk then this will encourage more hedgehogs into their garden. In fact they are not able to digest cows […]

    I would love hedgehogs to visit my garden which has fruit bushes, veg, flowers and shrubs in it. I have a hedgehog house and have placed hedgehog food out but the pigeon ate it. I also have a ladybird tower, a bird house, a butterfly feeder and a insect house, all of which are being visited and used, but sadly, no hoggies…has anyone any suggestions as to what I can do to encourage them…Thanks xx

    We’ve had hedgehogs in the garden for years and I’ve always supplemented our legion of slugs & snails with hedgehog food. The hogs have been easy to spot, wandering in at dusk and exploring the lawn for a couple of hours. We’ve also left a pile of branches in a quiet corner by the shed in hopes of getting a permanent neighbour. However, the food didn’t appear to be eaten this year so I suspect we haven’t had any – is there a foolproof way to tell?
