County sprays for mosquitoes in Cherry Hill this summerMosquito.png
The Camden County Mosquito Commission is spraying for mosquitoes throughout the summer in Cherry Hill. This week, the commission sprayed in Erlton South, Barlow, Lucerne, Bunker Hill, Barclay Farms South, Woodcrest, the Hunt Tract and Kings Croft. The spray is not harmful to humans and pets, but those who are sensitive to irritants or have respiratory concerns should avoid direct contact. The Commission sprays in neighborhoods and open spaces, but will not spray on private property. Residents can curb the growth of mosquito populations by checking their properties for sources of standing water, such as swimming pools, trash can lids and other containers.
