The Nanaimo School District is considering a new way to prevent vandalism.
It's a device called "The Mosquito" and it emits a high-frequency sound that is audible only to people under a certain age.
The Nanaimo Aquatic Centre uses one to discourage loitering and says it's working well.
The vandalism committee of the Nanaimo-Ladysmith school district has identified 2 schools for an $8,000 dollar pilot project utilizing the mosquito device - Uplands and Rock City Elementary.
Both schools have been plagued by graffiti, vandalism and break-ins during after school hours.
Graffiti and vandalism costs the district $140, 000 a year.
If the pilot project is a success, other schools could get the anti-loitering devices.
The manager of the aquatic centre says the mosquito is only one tool that can alleviate loitering and vandalism.
The School District is expected to give the go ahead for the pilot project Wednesday night.
