Apparently devices like that would have to be in the room that they're supposed to keep free from pests and would be pretty easy to spot. And even though the Hotel Capri is very close to the Malecon and consequently the ocean, I guess they would be used against bats rather than dolphins!
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
