Mosquito spraying scheduled Friday morning in Cherry Hill Township

Some township neighborhoods will be sprayed between the hours of 2 and 6 a.m.

A number of streets in Cherry Hill Township will be sprayed for mosquitos early Friday morning.

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.

“It is important that you regularly check your yard for the presence of standing water,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Mosquito Commission. “Removing standing water where mosquitoes can thrive will protect your family from the pests, and will assist the efforts of the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission.”

Spraying will take place between 2 and 6 a.m. along the following Cherry Hill streets:

“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.”

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