How far away should you situate your electronic mosquito killer?
The answer is not cut-and-dry. A common rule of thumb is that these devices will be killing mosquitoes within a 100 ft radius (about one acre). However, if people are on the edge of the circle, they will attract mosquitoes that are outside the 100 foot radius. Factors such as wind and physical properties (walls, fences, and buildings) will also interfere (positively and negatively) with the device's ability to attract mosquitoes.
