Mosquito Control Commission to Spray Throughout the Camden County on Friday, May 31

LINDENWALD, N.J. – The Mosquito Control Commission will be spraying beginning early morning, Friday, May 31, throughout Camden County.

“This week we got our first taste of summer storms and their ability to manifest and move through the area extremely quickly,” Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Mosquito Commission said in a press release. “Mosquitoes 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.”

The Commission will be conducting ULV “spraying” operations on between the hours of 2am-6am in the following locations, weather permitting:

“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.”

While the mosquito spray is not harmful to humans or pets, direct contact should be avoided if you have respiratory concerns or are sensitive to irritants.

Residents should keep an eye out for places on their property that holds water for more than a couple of days.  The pre-adult mosquito stages (eggs, larvae, and pupae) must be in stagnant water in order to develop into adult mosquitoes.                                                                                           

The Camden County Mosquito Commission suggests the following tips to help eliminate mosquito breeding:

  • Dispose of unnecessary containers that hold water.  Containers you wish to save turn upside down or put holes in the bottom so all water drains out.    
  • Lift up flowerpots and dump the water from the dish underneath every week.
  • Stock fish or add mosquito larvicide to ornamental ponds.
  • Change water in bird baths, fountains, and animal troughs weekly.
  • Screen vents to septic and other water tanks.
  • Store large boats so they drain and small boats upside down.  If covered, keep the tarp tight so water does not pool on top of the tarp.
  • Do not dump leaves or grass clippings into a catch basin or streams.
  • Do not allow water to collect on sagging tarps or awnings.
  • Do not allow trash can lids to fill with water.
  • Check downspouts that are able to hold enough water to allow mosquito larvae to mature.
