More mosquito spraying taking place in Gloucester Twp. overnight

Mosquito spraying will take place on a number of streets in the township from 2 to 6 a.m. early Thursday.

Some Gloucester Township neighborhoods will be sprayed for mosquitos overnight, according to the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission.

“Today’s forecast shows possible storms and showers throughout the afternoon, with the potential for more rain into the evening as this activity tapers off,” 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.”

  • Main Street

“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 should avoid direct contact if they have respiratory concerns or are sensitive to irritants.
