Poll: Do you agree with the use of 'mosquito alarms' to deter anti-social behaviour?
One is being used on Dublin’s O’Connell Street.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has written to the owners of a building on O’Connell Street following complaints of a loud, high-pitched noise bothering passers-by in the area.

A high-pitched alarm sound can be heard outside a number of buildings on O’Connell Street Upper, next to the Spire.

The device, a so-called ‘mosquito alarm’, was installed by the managers of a shared office building in a bid to deter anti-social behaviour and drug dealing.

We want to know: Do you agree with the use of mosquito alarms to deter anti-social behaviour?
