“Thank you again for what you did for me. I’m really looking forward to having the ALPHA sitting close to the door again. This summer the mosquitoes have been really bad with all the rain we’re having and the high humidity. I can answer some of your questions, but I really don’t know what kind of mosquitoes we have around here. It seems like the same kind we have always had. I never looked inside the bag to have a good look at them. Just thankful they were in the bag rather then in the house.

“We usually run the trap between the hours of 6 p.m. to 10 a.m. unless it’s raining. The mosquitoes usually don’t bother us during the day unless it is gray and humid, then we leave it on. Our patio is just off the sliding doors, and our patio table is about 5 feet from the doors, and that’s where we have the trap standing, and our woods is about 30 feet from the table.

Again, thank you.”

“I have experimented with the [ALPHA] unit.  I have put it in low places on a shelf, and
on a chair. I found it most effective about 5 feet up in the air, with no obstructions around. I’m in Tampa, and summers are rough.  Mosquitoes would bite me while I sleep. It’s hard to sleep, knowing that when I get up, I may have a bite here or there, or multiple bites. The octenol lures, increase the effectiveness 300 – 400 percent. My Alpha trap gets most of them, but I am seriously considering getting another Alpha unit for my bedroom.”

“This mosquito trap works PERFECTLY fine if you know what you’re doing. Since most of us on Amazon are American (I don’t wanna dis anybody, in-fact I LOVE Russia), the American instinct is to throw away the instructions, and learn from personal experience. Unfortunately, that is why a lot of things don’t work for us. IF YOU READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, this is the awesomest mosquito trap EVER. If you don’t then you’re missing out on a lot of information. The instructions tell you the best place for your trap, so if you don’t listen, you’ll just be guessing blind.
