Suggested Shrew Baits
Do you have a mouse trap and need to know what the best shrew bait options are? Victor® recommends the following baits to attract shrews.
Thin slice of hot dog
Tying the bait to the trigger will prevent the rodent from licking or nibbling the bait and stealing it without setting off the trap.
For baits that cannot be tied (peanut butter, e.g.), it's best to use small amounts.
