Dangers to Hedgehogs

- Don’t feed milk or bread, this will make them ill.

- Don’t use plastic netting as this can entangle the hedgehogs and cause serious injuries.

- Slug pellets are very dangerous. Hedgehogs enjoy the odd slug, and any poison they ingest can kill.

- Check compost heaps before turning. Hogs may use them to nest and hibernate.

- Check under hedges and bushes before strimming. Strimmers can cause very nasty injuries to hogs.

- Check bonfires carefully for hedgehogs. Better still rebuild them before lighting.

- If you disturb a nest please replace it and leave well alone.

- If shed doors are left open overnight, don’t suddenly shut them, a hog may have made it it’s home and this will trap them. Check first.

- If a hog is seen out in the day it usually means it’s in trouble. Please contact your local hedgehog society for advice. More information can be found here- http://www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk

For another 4 years?  It does go on for rather a long time!

x post.

You can get little hog houses Moose.  Sadly we don't get them in the garden any more.

79291...yeah 4 years but they are always having elections for different things along the way.  I liked when they elected people with regular names like John,Jimmy, Richard, Ron, George, Bill etc....not this Mitt and Barack nonsense

Is Mitt short for something?  Doesn't Barack get called Barry?

I think Mitt is short for "Oven Mitt"...seriously I think that is his middle name and his first name is Willard.  No idea about Barack.  I think "Obi" sounds nice though.

I bet neither one likes hedgehogs

I used to see lots of hedgehogs when I was a kid, but hardly ever see one these days
They campaign for 2 years of the 4 in the US, seems crazy, and look how much money they have wasted - billions when the economy is in such a state ...

B.....I was just talking to someone about their 18 months run up to the election....what is that saying about some guy playing the violin while Rome burned??  Real messed up place politically.  (They also have mid-term elections for other things so it never ends)  I laugh how they talk about "American interests" around the world.   No other country talks like that....I try to point it out to my Yankee friends but they think I'm crazy.  Anyway....they did a survey here and 72% hope Obama win so the race isn't so close outside of the USA!

B...I remember visitng England and my Aunt had a little pond and the hedgehogs would show up there in the evening.  I think they're really cool!  (Hedgehogs...not ponds)

Ponds are a bit cool this time of year!  We used to have a little hog that walked around the edge of the garden in the night, used to hear him walking on the shingle but he's not been about for yonks.  Do get the odd fox though, not as cute!
