Mosquito Spraying

Camden County Mosquito Commission resumes spraying in Cherry Hill

The Camden County Mosquito Control Commission has begun its annual spraying for mosquitoes, and will be spraying in neighborhoods across Cherry Hill for the next several weeks in an effort to limit growth of our area's mosquito population. During the summer and fall months, the commission schedules spraying on an as-needed basis, based upon the results of their surveillance efforts and input from the public. Visit the Township website for local spraying schedules, as they are announced by the County.

Visit for more information about the Mosquito Commission, and for tips you can use to help eliminate mosquito breeding in your own yards. For more information, or to inquire about spraying in your area contact the Mosquito Commission directly at (856) 566-2945.
