If he is an a**, I would suggest a pellet gun at long range OR a very large rock at close range. Fortunately, in the long run, your son will outgrow this or you could just get him an iPod and let him ruin his rearing.
How does the Mosquito system work?Mosquito is essentially a sounder unit that emits a very high frequency modulated tone that is completely harmless even with long term use. The unit has been tested by NPL to ensure it complies with all relevant legislation.I am not a teenager, will the Mosquito annoy me?This is very unlikely and research has shown that the majority of people over the age of 25, have lost the ability to hear at this frequency range. It should be borne in mind, however, that the unit usually has the desired effect – moving the crowds away – within just a few minutes, at which time the unit can be turned off. So even if you are able to hear the noise to some degree, you would not have to put up with it for long.What about dogs?Although dogs have very acute hearing and are easily able to hear at this frequency, extensive testing shows that it does not appear to bother them.How quickly does it work?The longer someone is exposed to the sound, the more annoying it becomes. Field trials have shown that teenagers are acutely aware of the Mosquito and usually move away from the area within just a couple of minutes. The field trails also suggest that after several uses, the groups of children / teenagers tend not to loiter in the areas covered by the Mosquito, even when it is not turned on.What is the range of the Mosquito?The effective range is between 15 and 20 metres. The closer one gets to the unit the more effective it is.What about teenage customers and my neighbours?It takes 5 - 10 minutes for the presence of the sound to become annoying, even on teenagers. Genuine teenage customers who will only be within range for seconds whilst on their way in and out of the shop will not find the sound of significant consequence. As the transmission of the sound is directional and as high frequency short wavelengths do not travel effectively through solid objects, it is unlikely that there will be any adverse effect on neighbours.
I can hear the dog whistle ring tone and I'm 42 so the higher frequencies of sound don't go for every adult. I teach from time to time and have confiscated a lot of phones because of this, HA! My hearing has always been very good though.I think either find a replacement zapper for this guy and explain the problem, probably in a series of grunts if he is an aXX. The ipod ideas is also good.My next door neighbour is also an aXX and has a yapping dog that never stops all day. It makes chilling in the garden impossible. Noise has become a big deal in Britain as far as pollution is concerned and I think the zapper would be against the law here.
