Answer: 
Typical beetle flight height is 3 to 4 ft off of the ground. You can use the hang tag included to hang from your fence or attach to a post, or pick up a KwikStand to hang the trap wherever you want.

Answer: 
I believe it's about 3 feet off the ground and away from the plants. I bought the hanger that is made specifically for the bag-a-bug trap.

Answers

Answer: 
We haven't heard of this happening before. The plastic of the bag is thick with strong seams -- beetles certainly should not be able to rip it open. Is it possible that it's attracting animals at night?

Answer: 
Try using a one-gallon zip-lock food storage bag. Poke four small holes under the zip part to hang from the unit. Clip a tiny bit of each lower corner off to let rain water out, but not big enough for beetles to get out. Place a couple staples near the center of the bag to keep beetles from flying back out. Works like a charm.

Bait placement

Does the bait face open outward or inward? Plastic shell on the outside or the inside?
I put the bait with the cover facing out to protect from the elements.

Answer: 
This product works great against Japanese beetles, and there's no reason you shouldn't get the same results with a commercial nursery. Please let us know if you have further questions.

Does the lure come out and stay between the lines on the yellow part of the bag - I think the instructions say the back is peeled down and the lure scent exposed and the whole thing is put between the lines on the bag. Please advise on placement, too.....it seems the situation is worse on our roses.

Answers

Answer: 
Right, just peel the cover off of the lure and put the corners of its packaging in the slots on the vane. For best results, put the trap about 30 ft downwind of your roses.
