Mosquito spraying scheduled for Cherry Hill overnight

A few streets in Cherry Hill Township will be sprayed for mosquitos during the overnight hours tonight.

The Camden County Mosquito Control Commission will be in the community spraying and surveilling areas throughout Camden County. This summer, the county has seen more rain than usual which is creating an ideal environment for mosquitoes to breed.

“Even without rain in the weekend’s forecast, there’s always a chance that there’s water left standing from storms earlier this week that homeowners should check their yard for and remove,” Camden County Freeholder Jeff Nash said. “Mosquitos need standing water to breed, so you can help keep them from your property by removing any standing water from places like flower pots and containers. This helps us reduce the pest population in your neighborhood, and it assists the efforts of the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission.”

Spraying will take place on Friday, Aug. 25, between 2 and 6 a.m. along the following streets:

  • Birch Street
  • Northwood Avenue
  • Beechwood Avenue
  • Olive Street
  • Kenilworth Avenue
  • Carriage House Court
  • Manor House Drive
  • Dressage Court
  • Walkaway Lane
  • Furlong Drive

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