Shrews are actually beneficial in that they are predators of voles and other pests, so if shrews are present you might have a problem with voles rather than the shrews themselves. The most effective methods of controlling voles (and moles) involve trapping them. You might want to consult with your county extension for a more definite identification of the animal (265-5051) and suggested methods of controlling it.
