One of the ways of identifying shrews is that their droppings have a distinctive spiral twist to them.
I was just suggesting that perhaps the ones from the smaller shrews might not be larger than the typical mouse. I have not had enough problems with them specifically to be "reading of the tea leaves". If I remember correctly shrews are not rodents. They may have a lot of hair and bone matter in the scat and be much larger, so you may be entirely correct.Sorry I meant the droppings specifically. Aren’t the shrew droppings bigger than mouse droppings?
I lost a Jeep to mice chewing on wires and then started a fire,Has anyone else noticed a large increase in the mouse population as I have? I live in the country and I am always battling mice, but this year was something else. I really had to step up my game this year, especially after they cost me over 1k in car repairs from chewed wires. To be fair to the mouse community, chipmunks may have chewed the wires, but there was a mouse nest under the hood so I am blaming them. My mechanic said he knows of people that had to total their cars due to electrical issues caused by mice. J
