A Study was conducted to ascertain the specific noise emitted by presumed noisy environments. This was achieved by direct measurement of the noise with the use of an integrated sound level meter in which a built-in frequency filter or weighting network is incorporated. Ten (10) environments were selected in Ilorin and Akure towns in Nigeria, in which sixty (60) readings were taken at intervals of 30 seconds for 30minutes separately at each location. This amounted to an overall reading of six hundred (600) readings. The results show that the Lawn Mower emits noise with the highest Equivalent sound level,
