Do swarms of teenagers on your facility’s property irritate you?

Now there’s a new way to irritate them enough to make them leave. North American Video, a security systems integrator, has signed an agreement to distribute the Mosquito Ultrasonic Teenager Deterrent Device.

The Mosquito MK II M85 is a non-invasive, ultrasonic device that has been designed specifically to disperse groups of teenagers who may be loitering in areas where they could prove to be a nuisance. The device produces a signal that is audible only to teenagers. Because of natural hearing loss, those near or over 30 years of age will be unaware of the noise.

Although the sound is not painful, it does become highly irritating after five to ten minutes of exposure, and teens tend to leave the immediate area. The system, which has an effective range of about 50 feet, is safe even after prolonged exposure.

This product has already been proven successful overseas, where hordes of underage Europeans have been driven from their favorite dark corners.

  1. yes, it is DEFINITELY annoying and would deter the folks sensitive to it.

    hmm, maybe you should put one by the television… or maybe on inside the fridge, cut down on those grocery and electricity bills in one go. ;)

  2. I was wondering if it really did work. Now I know! (I think I’ll try to find a creative way to use it on my 15-year-old son…)

  3. teenagers don’t annoy me… but, that buzzer sure does. ;)

    I’d read a story on a nerdy newsgroup about kids recording that sound and using it as a ringtone during school classes; even on vibrate, a cell phone will still make a telltale sound.

    So, many of us were curious if we could hear it… I am approaching 30 and could, but, there were a few guys in their 40’s and 50’s who could as well, but, to varying levels of irritation. I couldn’t listen to it for more than about 10 seconds. ~shudder,cringe~

    Yeah, if I approached a store or other facility playing one of those things that irritated myself or my son, I’d turn around and leave.
