Mosquito spraying slated for Cherry Hill tonight

Numerous neighborhoods will be sprayed between 2 and 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

A slew of streets in Cherry Hill will be sprayed for mosquitos overnight.

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.”

The following Cherry Hill streets will be sprayed on Wednesday morning between 2 and 6 a.m.

“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, but anyone who is sensitive to irritants or has respiratory concerns should avoid direct contact.
