Martens can cause a lot of trouble. Thanks to their nocturnal activity and flexibility in eating, they are increasingly found in the houses of villages and towns. Since martens can climb very well, they prefer to stay in and around the house in attics, barns, sheds and garages, where they can cause considerable property damage and transmit pathogens such as rabies.

Commercially available products such as marten deterrents and other marten traps usually do not have the desired effect of effectively driving away martens. Often the problem persists, and professional marten defence measures are required.
