Shrew

Our remedy for shrew control

First, contact us. The most effective way to keep your home protected from shrews is to seal up any possible crack or crevice in the structural foundation of the building to prevent them from accessing your living spaces. A baiting system installed on the exterior perimeter may also help control populations.

We’ll do all the hard work for you! Take a look at our Healthy Home Maintenance Program!

How to Identify a Shrew

Appearance

Small and slender, 3 to 4 inches long, with large ears, small eyes and pointed nose. Light brown or light gray. Droppings are rod-shaped.

Habitat

Shrews are very territorial, with burrowing tendencies just like voles. Living in mostly rural or wooded areas, the shrew is closer related to the mole than it is to the mouse. They live underground, can climb trees, and even live underneath snow in the winter. They don’t hibernate, have poor vision, excellent hearing and smell senses and constantly forage for food.

Diet

Shrews have insatiable appetites and will eat 80-90% of their body weight in seeds, nuts, worms, vegetation and insects every day.

Or Let us identify it for you

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!

“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
