Mosquito spraying on tap for Gloucester Township early Wednesday

The spraying will take place along some streets between 2 and 6 a.m.

Some parts of Gloucester Township will be sprayed for mosquitos early Wednesday morning. Camden County schedules mosquito spraying on an as-needed basis based on the results of its surveillance efforts.

“Throughout the day and this evening, the current forecast calls for intermittent rain and some possible showers,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Mosquito Commission. “Mosquitos need standing water to breed, so the first thing you should do after any rain is check your yard and remove any standing water to help eliminate the threat. This simple act can help reduce the pest population in your neighborhood, and assist the efforts of the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission.”

Camden County Mosquito Commission will be spraying between 2 and 6 a.m. in the following locations, weather permitting:

  • Clubhouse Lane
  • Swift Run Drive
  • Hazeltop Drive
  • Skyline Drive
  • Loft Mountain Drive
  • Shenandoah Drive
  • Jefferson Drive
  • Madison Drive
  • Hamilton Drive
  • Kennedy Drive West
  • Monitor Court
  • Lincoln Drive
  • Vicksburg Road
  • Roanoke Road
  • Spring Hill Drive
  • N Fork Road
  • Stone River Road
  • Constitution Road
  • Antietam Drive
  • Brandywine Road
  • Ticonderoga Street
  • Hartford Road
  • Appomattox Drive
  • Sumter Street
  • Washington Street
  • Grant Court
  • Grant Drive
  • Stoneybridge Road
  • W Kennedy Drive
  • Bull Run Road
  • Cedar Creek Drive
  • Madison Drive

“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 is sensitive to irritants or has respiratory concerns should avoid direct contact.
