Incensed by shrews? You should be, as many shrew species dig burrows damaging property searching for storing food and hiding from predators. There over 30 recognized shrew species in the United States, the US Territories, and Canada – and they all multiply rapidly. Although shrews usually live 1 to 2 years, they have 1 to 3 litters per year with 2 to 10 young per litter.
As an insectivore the shrew lives underground foraging for seeds, insects, nuts, grubs, and worms. They frequently use the tunnels made by voles and moles. They are very active animals, with voracious appetites and unusually high metabolic rates. Shrews must eat 80-90 % of their own body weight in food daily.
