Cherry Hill neighborhoods to be sprayed for mosquitos on Sept. 8

The Camden County Mosquito Commission regularly checks several thousand suspected mosquito breeding sites across the county. Spraying is scheduled on an as needed basis based upon the results of their surveillance efforts.

“There is a potential for scattered showers late Thursday through Monday afternoon due to an approaching frontal system. Whenever it rains, you should still inspect your yard and remove all standing water to reduce the mosquito population,” said Freeholder Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the Camden County Mosquito Commission. “This simple act can help eliminate the pest population in your neighborhood, and assist the efforts of the commission.”

The commission will spray for mosquitos in Cherry Hill on Tuesday, Sept. 8, from 2 to 6 a.m. in the following locations:

  • St. Mary’s Drive
  • Village Drive
  • Doncaster Road
  • Oakley Drive

“The commission works with the Public Health Environmental Laboratories in Trenton to verify the presence of West Nile Virus and other communicable diseases in their samples,” Nash said. “If a pool tests positive for West Nile Virus the Mosquito Commission returns to spray the area. The sprayings take place when the mosquitoes are most active.”

The mosquito spray is not harmful to humans or pets, but you should avoid direct contact if you have respiratory concerns or are sensitive to irritants.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the main route of human infection with West Nile Virus is through the bite of a mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. Individuals over the age of 50 are more likely to develop serious symptoms of West Nile Virus, and should take special care to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.

Residents should check their property for any object that holds water for more than a few days. All pre-adult mosquito stages must be in stagnant water in order to develop into adult mosquitoes.
