Shrews are commonly found in gardens, wetlands and fields. They occasionally feed on fungi and seeds but prefer a diet of insects, earthworms and snails. Shrews are very territorial and tend to be aggressive towards pets, squirrels and humans. They share similar characteristics with rats and are sometimes mistaken for a small rat. Shrews are venomous animals and should not be handled. Exclusion of the structure and trapping are the best means of prevention. Unlike with mice and rats, rodenticides are not effective for controlling shrews.
Porcupines are found in wooded areas and like to climb and scratch trees. They are herbivores and their diets consist of twigs, clover, cabbage and leaves. The porcupine can be seen occasionally during the day foraging food but are primarily nocturnal animals.
