The county's Mosquito Commission sprays in areas with documented mosquito breeding. This year, breeding is particularly prolific because of the heavy rainfall during June and into July, officials said.
“The mosquito commission is working on a regular basis to treat infested areas of the county and work with neighbors to eradicate these pests,” Freeholder Jeffrey Nash said. “I want to emphasize how important it is for residents to follow our tips and recommendations to eliminate ideal breeding areas for mosquitoes.”
The mosquito spray is not harmful to humans or pets, according to county officials, but people with respiratory concerns and those sensitive to irritants should avoid direct contact.
Spraying takes place in Winslow Township tonight, from 7:30 p.m.-11:30 p.m., weather permitting.
Spraying in Gloucester Township and Runnemede takes place Thursday night, from 7:30 p.m.-11:30 p.m., weather permitting.
“The Camden County Mosquito Commission encourages residents to continue to safeguard against the pests,” Nash said. “While the chance of becoming ill is relatively small, there are things you can do to protect yourself and your family.”
