Camden County to spray for mosquitoes

Originally from the Courier Post

LINDENWOLD –  The Camden County Mosquito Commission was scheduled to spray mosquito-breeding sites in Lindenwold and Cherry Hill early this morning between 2:30 and 6:30 a.m.

According to Freeholder Jeffrey Nash, the mosquito commission works with the Public Health Environmental Laboratories in Trenton for West Nile virus testing in various areas around the county.

“If a pool tests positive for West Nile virus, the Mosquito Commission returns to spray the area,” said Nash, liaison to commission.

“The spraying takes place when the mosquitoes are most active.”

The commission will be spraying Crowland Avenue in Lindenwold and the following areas in Cherry Hill: Ambler, Ashland, Astar, Bala, Brick, Browning Lane, Colmar, Colwick, Cranford, Dogwood, Juniper, Kent, Kingston, Lenape, Lily Lane, Merion, Nature, Overbrook, Partree, Partridge, Pleasant Drive, Rymill, Sandringham, Sheffield, St. David, St. Martins, Squire, Tearose, Tendring, Western and Yorkshire.

The mosquito spray is not harmful to humans or pets, but those with respiratory problems or sensitivity to irritants should avoid direct contact.

To report a problem or for more information, please contact the Camden County Mosquito Commission at (856) 566-2945 orskeeters@camdencounty.com.
