Dear Mr Stapleton

You requested an opinion on the measurements reported in our Test Report reference S5341 in relation to specified safety limits for high frequency sound. I hope the following fulfils this request.

HSE Report 343/2001[1 reviews the limits prescribed internationally for levels of very high frequency sound (8 kHz - 20 kHz) and ultrasound (above 20 kHz), from the 1960s to present. A mixture of limits are reported relating to both the onset of unpleasant, but not necessarily harmful, subjective effects, and actual hearing damage. Indeed the report's conclusion on limits, states that limits were mostly 'set to avoid unpleasant subjective effects'. The specified limits vary between 75-90 dB. The lowest limit of 75 dB derives from one particular researcher (Action, 1968) and is stated as being applicable to subjective effects. Interestingly, the limits are given in terms of unweighted sound pressure level (dB), rather than A-weighted levels (dBA). The corresponding figure for the Mosquito at 3 m is 83.2 dB.

Limits for occupational hearing damage in the context of an 8 hour working day are also given as between 75-85 dB and between 84-97 dB for 1 hour exposure. These '1 hour exposure' limits are perhaps the most relevant in the report and the Mosquito is seen to be just under this.

An alternative point of view can be to consider current UK Noise at Work regulations[2] which specify a level of 85 dBA for an 8 hour working day, equivalent to 94 dBA for 1 hour. At 76 dBA at 3 m the Mosquito clearly would not present as noise hazard under the terms of these regulations. Even when the 8 hour limit is reduced to 80 dBA in 2006, over 16 hours of exposure to a level of 76 dBA is required to reach the daily noise limit. However consideration must be given to differences in the acoustical environment, the reproducibility of the acoustic output of the device and the actual distance to the observer in-situ.

Testimonials

  • SHAUN MORRIS, Security Manager Northern Property, Yellowknife, NT

    The Mosquito works great for us, Our problem with panhandlers & homeless people hanging out has dramatically improved since we installed the mosquito.

    We left it on full time during business hours for the first few weeks and after that we were able to turn it off and just use it periodically as needed.

  • Carmen Ramirez, Park Avenue Enterprises LLC, New York, NY

    "It was amazing! Immediately the Mosquito effectively cleared out the loitering teens from the troubled area without hassle or confrontation."

  • Wade Rohloff, Graphic Safety, Hobbs, NM

    "The mosquito worked perfectly last night. I got it hooked up just in time for some kids to show up and make a lot of noise. After I turned it on they began complaining and left shortly thereafter. This thing is amazing."

  • Sarah Ward, PC 1623

    "Regarding the Mosquito apparatus that we have recently been using in our area, this is just a note to say that we have been extremely pleased with it.

    We have also had a positive reaction regarding its use from members of the public. In short, it has been an all-round success."

  • Lincolnshire Police

    "It is still presently sited at an old folks complex and is giving them a long awaited respite from ASB."

    Colin Hill PC 879
    Lincolnshire Police
    ASB Officer - South Holland District Council

  • David Meade, Millennium Place Primary Condominium, Boston, MA

    "The Mosquito has been effective. It has been implemented with other low echelon security measures and the results have been absolutely amazing. If the comparison prior to the mosquito install is made to present, we have seen a 95% to 98% decrease in activity and incidents in the stairwell."
