Shrews Rodent Library - Identify Shrew Damage - Victor Shrew Control



Other Names:  Water Shrew, Pygmy Shrew, Common Shrew


A shrew is about the same size as a mouse or a vole and can be recognized it by its long pointy nose and very sharp teeth.  Ounce for ounce, a shrew is the most voracious animal on the planet.  It hunts constantly, eating animals five times larger than itself. It will even go after birds at feeders and attack family pets.






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.

          ◊    Bacon Norway Rat Bacon Bait - Norway Rat Baits - Victor Recommended Norway Rat Baits
          ◊    Thin slice of hot dog
          ◊    Earthworm



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.




Victor®, the industry leader in rodent control, offers a variety of innovative mouse control solutions such as electronic mouse traps, ultrasonic mouse repellents and rodenticides to help you with all your rodent control needs.
