wikipedia Wrote:The Mosquito or Mosquito alarm is an electronic device used to deter loitering by young people by emitting sound at high frequency, in some versions so it can only be heard by younger people. The devices have attracted controversy on the basis of human rights and discrimination concerns.

visit the wikipedia article and play the sound file.

Well, yeah, when I turned the volume up to 90 I could hear a faint sound, but nothing that grated on my nerves.

It seems quite loud to me even with volume turned way down. I'm going to play that for the others here and see if they hear it.
