Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. from a previous post i am soon to vacate my married quarter, but under my shed which i will be removing and throwing in a skip, lives a hedgehog and his family.

    what is the best way to relocate the hedgehog, i dont want to leave him out in the upcoming cold without a suitable home.
  2. Won't they be hibernating? Murderer!

    Well, if the 1990s documentary programme 'Bottom' has taught us anything, it's that hedgehogs love chocolate covered Hob Nobs.

  6. 1. Dig a large pit in the garden
    2.Demolish shed into burnsize bits of wood
    3.Use the clay out of the pit to wrap around the tastie little critters
    4.light large fire with shed wood in the pit and roast for 1hr 30 mins.

    The spikes will come of in the clay and the guts just shrivel up inside leaving you with a very tasty sunday lunch....

    Take them with you, then in the spring you'll be able to BBQ their eggs in your new shed.

    Or move them to a new nest, somewhere warm, dry and protected from the weather. Don't forget your gloves.

  8. They will have either begun hibernating or be about to so disturbing them now is really not ideal, even though it's mild at the moment it's unlikely they will be able to relocate successfully. Advice from the Tigglewinkle lot or your local wildlife rescue is definitely your best bet, avoid RSCPA. And yes, cat or dog food is by far the best sustenance for the dear little critters, not milk and bread as commonly thought which is detrimental. I hope you manage to sort it out for them.

  10. My my, such flagrant disregard for the shed...what with hedgehogs living under it and it to be demolished and thrown into a common skip! What is the world coming to? Anyway, the answer to the aforementioned problem is simple. Simply throw a thunderflash under the shed and let it works its magic. It will soon have them scarpering to the garden next door.

  12. When i was a boy scout they used to show us how to cook them.
    As i recall they are very tasty and nothing like chicken either.
  13. Do you have to take down the shed?
