Problem: Out of hours gatherings of youths
On installing a Mosquito device:
Youths would immediately vacant the area. The installation has prevented unwanted, out of hours anti-social behaviour around schools in the area.
After installing our first Mosquito in the Locksheath District Centre and its immediate success, the devices are now being used in schools in our county to prevent out of hours gatherings.

Already the device has helped with youth crowd control at our school system in Columbia. What we like about them is that you can move crowds on without getting into a confrontation. Within five minutes of switching it on they’ve all gone somewhere elsewhere.
