Mosquito spraying on tap for Gloucester Township on Wednesday

A number of streets will be sprayed for mosquitos in the early morning hours of Wednesday.

The Camden County Mosquito Commission will conduct mosquito spraying along some Gloucester Township streets early Wednesday morning. Spraying is scheduled on an as needed basis based upon the results of the commission’s 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 commission will conduct spraying on Wednesday, July 3, from 2 to 6 a.m. in the following locations, weather permitting:

  • Mullen Drive
  • Point View Circle
  • Red Gravel Circle
  • Graypebble Circle
  • Sandstone Drive
  • Waterview Drive
  • Granite Court
  • Sandstone Drive
  • Flagstone Drive
  • Crystal Court
  • Diamond Court
  • Emerald Court
  • Scenic Point View

“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 residents who have respiratory concerns or are sensitive to irritants should avoid direct contact.
