Abstract: We study representations of simple alternative superalgebras $B(1,2)$ and $B(2,4)$. The irreducible bimodules and bimodules with superinvolution over these superalgebras are classified, and some analogues of the Kronecker factorization theorem are proved for alternative superalgebras that contain $B(1,2)$ and $B(4,2)$.
