Martens & Polecats

Martens & Polecats

What are stone martens?
Stone martens are about the size of a cat and have a big white patch on their neck and front paws. They look cute, but can cause a lot of nuisance. The stone marten is a protected species in some countries. This means that the animal may not be imprisoned, dislodged nor be killed. This is one of the reasons it’s hard to keep martens away.

Car damage
A car that spontaneously catches fire without a clearly visible cause? The stone marten might be the cause. Stone martens are responsible for many car damages, which leads to a fortune of costs.

Stone martens love the insulation of wiring. In order to keep wiring flexible, fishmeal is a substance that is often assimilated in the wires. This substance lures martens. When martens gnaw on wires and expose the wiring, it can easily result in fire.

Other examples of car damage caused by martens are destroyed hood lining and insulation, leaky water pipes of windscreen washers, eroded belts, fuel lines and electrical wires.

Other damage
Stone martens are not only fond of cable cars, they also love to stay in attics, wall cavities and other places where they can cause a huge mess of debris, feces and accumulation of prey remains.

Tips
What can you do against stone martens? The tips most commonly given are:

  1. Place ultrasound devices in the engine compartment (see products below)
  2. Spray with scent that repels martens, such as Mustolet. 
  3. Car parking on chicken wire.
  4. Provide cables with sturdy plastic or metal.
  5. Hang a toilet block in the engine compartment
  6. Turn on the radio via timer.
