With more than 250 identified species worldwide, shrews hold the appearance of a long nose, sharp teeth, dense fur, and five clawed toes. Shrews also have the ability to survive in a wide range of habitats—basically all terrestrial areas.
How to Get Rid of Shrews:
For yards, gardens, and areas 3,000-4,000 square feet: The Yard Gard and Solar Yard Gard are electronic devices that work to prevent shrews and other pest animals from infesting your property. These ultrasonic repellents use sounds out of the range of human hearing to irritate pest animals, and keep them off your property. The animals are not harmed by the ultrasonic frequencies emitted, but are rather encouraged to find more peaceful, untreated areas. Weather safe, water safe, and pet safe, these low maintenance products are most ideal for outdoor use.
For outdoor areas up to 50 feet in radius: The Transonic Mole targets burrowing animals from digging up lawns and gardens. A multi-sensory attack combines flashing lights, vibrations, and penetrating sonic tones to effectively rid your property of the pests. The sounds and vibration are emitted every 20 seconds, calling for a low maintenance operation.
For residential areas: Nature’s Defense: All Purpose Animal Repellent is a 100% certified organic and natural repellent. By simply applying the formula onto the infested area, it can work to repel up to 20 different pest species including shrews. Nature’s Defense establishes an irritating scent barrier that forces these pests away to untreated areas. Application is recommended once every week to maintain effectiveness.
For large, remote outdoor areas up to 6 acres: The Critter Blaster PRO is a sonic pest system that aggressively harasses critters and pest birds away from large, remote outdoor areas. The four-speaker system contains 8 different harassment sounds that can irritate the pests. This forces the creatures, including shrews, to find a calmer, untreated environments to inhabit—away from your home.
Humane shrew control methods are equally effective against all types of shrews including species around the world.
