    Hello,
    In a newly opened vft trap (typical) i noticed an unusual number of trigger hairs, 5 of them, just on one side of the trap, the other half had 3. Is this like an abnormal phenomenon, or just a wierd thing?

    I'd say it's a weird thing. Every once in a while they'll do that. But hey, it helps the trap because there are now more hairs for a bug to touch.

    Up to 7 per side, depending on the individual clone is within "normal" (freaky isn't it?)
