Mosquito spraying scheduled for Cherry Hill early Thursday morning

Some Cherry Hill neighborhoods will be sprayed for mosquitos during the early morning hours on Thursday.

Early Thursday morning the Mosquito Control Commission will be in the community spraying throughout Camden County. During the summer and fall months the commission schedules on an as-needed basis based upon the results of their surveillance efforts and input from the public.

“Even the smallest amount of standing water can allow mosquitoes to thrive. With the late summer bringing pop-up showers and storms, homeowners should frequently check their yard and remove any standing water to help eliminate the threat,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Mosquito Commission. “This simple act can help reduce the pest population in your neighborhood, and assist the efforts of the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission.”

“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, the Mosquito Commission returns to spray the area. The sprayings take place when the mosquitoes are most active.”

Mosquito spray is not harmful to humans or pets. Residents should avoid direct contact if they have respiratory concerns or are sensitive to irritants.
