Somewhere outside our office building a "sound repellant"(I guess that's what they are called) against rats or moles has been installed.
Due to its high frequency, only some of us can hear the device cheep every now and then and ONLY when the window is open. But due to currently high temperatures, we have to open the window thus have to hear said noise (or accept utterly stuffy and warm rooms).
Some already reported the noise for impairing the working climate but its always being dismissed for being "necessary to keep rodents away" or "inaudible" (because they can't hear it)
Is there any option/argument to go against this since authorities and most of the employees can't hear it and rodent protection seems to be inevitable?
EDIT:As mentioned by Lilienthal, the way I formulated the question is a bit too "open" though I actually mean what he suggested:
how can I effectively argue that the device should be removed / deactivated during work hours?
