Teen Be Gone: Renaming teen repellents

PopNamers, do you find teens loitering around your neighborhood as annoying as a bug buzzing around your ears? A popular solution is the Mosquito. It discourages children and teens from hanging out in public areas by emitting an ultra high pitch sound that adults cannot hear, but causes discomfort for kids and teens who can hear it. A UK couple went so far as to install one in their own backyard to keep the neighboring kids quiet. Other anti-loitering tactics include playing classical music, playing opera music, or strategically placing acne-enhancing “pink” lights. Talk about harsh lighting!


Don’t cover your ears on this one PopNamers. What would you name a device that repels teens?
