The Mosquito ultrasonic teenage deterrent is the solution to the eternal problem of unwanted gatherings of youths and teenagers in shopping malls, around shops and anywhere else they are causing problems. The presence of these teenagers discourages genuine shoppers and customers’ from coming into your shop, affecting your turnover and profits. Anti social behavior has become the biggest threat to private property over the last decade and there has been no effective deterrent until now. Acclaimed by the Police forces of many areas of the United Kingdom, the Mosquito ultrasonic teenage deterrent has been described as "the most effective tool in our fight against anti social behaviour". Shop keepers around the world have purchased the device to move along unwanted gatherings of teenagers and anti social youths. Railway companies have placed the device to discourage youths from spraying graffiti on their trains and the walls of stations. With an effective range of between fifteen and twenty meters field trials have shown that teenagers are acutely aware of the Mosquito and usually move away from the area within an average of 8 - 10 minutes. The system is completely harmless even with long term use. The Times newspaper in England reports that the device was first used at a Spar shop in Barry, South Wales, where the owner Robert Gough was enthusiastic about the device's success in driving away the local youths. "Either someone has come along and wiped them off the face of the earth, or it's working" he is quoted as saying. Since then, there have been literally hundreds of successful reports not only from police and local authorities, but also from business owners. It seems that there is a very real medical phenomenon known as presbycusis or age related hearing loss which, according to The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, "begins after the age of 20 but is usually significant only in persons over 65". It first affects the highest frequencies (18 to 20 kHz) notably in those who have turned 20 years of age". It is possible to generate a high frequency sound that is audible only to teenagers. Is your business suffering from anti social youths driving your customers away or generally causing damage or nuicance? Are you bothered by crowds of teenager’s hanging around your street and making life unpleasant? Mosquito™ ultrasonic deterrent can solve your problem.

As Vice-President of the Home Owners Association of the sub-division where I live in Frederick Maryland has been having problems with gangs of kids hanging out late at night in our tot lot. We have had incidents of "tagging" on the equipment,
alleged drug activity, noise, etc. All of my efforts to start a Neighborhood Watch have been put on the back burner because the Frederick County Sheriff's Office requires 65% of resident participation (Ha!). We determined that a lighting system as a deterrent would cost us around $4,000; our Property Manager received information on "The Mosquito" in the mail and we are going to have a demonstration at our Annual Meeting on June 18th to demionstrate this product.
The specs and testimonials look good, I will update later on it's effectiveness.
