re rats.....well, the brown rat tends to burrow under things - like our shed, for instance, and sets up home underneath it, having excavated a big tunnel, a bit like a badger does with his sett. They will also make tunnels and live in these, but they really don't much care to have to be out in the 'open' - they usually stay close to a wall/barrier - hence 'rat-run' or 'rat-race'. If you can site a hedgehog box in the middle of a more open space, and maybe cover it with leaves, it might prove safer than if it were near a wall. I'm not sure a rat would attempt to eat a 'hog, though.
