The summer weather has created an ideal environment for mosquitoes to breed.

As rain swept through the region earlier this week, Commissioner Jeff Nash, liaison with the Camden County Mosquito Commission, spoke about watching for standing water.

“Homeowners should remember to check their yard and remove standing water to eliminate the mosquito threat,” Nash said. “Mosquitoes need standing water to breed, so you can help keep them off your property by removing water from places like flower pots and containers. This helps us reduce the pest population in your neighborhood and supports the efforts of the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission.”

“The commission is working with Public Health Environmental Laboratories in Trenton to screen for 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 spraying takes place when the mosquitoes are most active.”

The bug spray is not harmful to humans or pets, but you should avoid direct contact if you have breathing problems or are sensitive to irritants.

Residents should check their property for items that have held water for more than a few days.

All pre-adult mosquito stages (eggs, larvae, and pupae) must be in stagnant water to develop into adult mosquitoes.

Swimming pools are a common problem.

All pools need to be checked and maintained to keep them mosquito free. Swimming pools can allow mosquitoes to multiply within days after you stop adding chlorine or other sanitizers.

Pool covers can catch rainwater and become a mosquito development site. Add a little chlorine to kill mosquitoes.

Maintain screens to prevent adult mosquitoes from entering your home or business.

Personal protection is highly recommended if you are outside when mosquitoes can be active – generally around dawn and dusk. Insect repellents containing between 10% and 35% DEET are very effective, but be sure to follow label directions and take extra precautions with children and infants.

The Camden County Mosquito Commission suggests looking for mosquito breeding containers in your yard.

Below is a checklist of tips for getting rid of the mosquito brood:

  • Discard unnecessary containers that contain water.
  • Containers you plan to store turn them upside down or make holes in the bottom to allow all the water to drain out.
  • Each week, pick up flower pots and pour the water from the tray underneath.
  • Store fish or add mosquito larvicide to ornamental ponds.
  • Change the water in bird baths, fountains, and pet waterers weekly.
  • Umbrella vents to septic and other water tanks.
  • Store large boats so that they run off and small boats upside down. Once covered, keep the tarp tight to prevent water from pooling on the tarp.
  • Do not throw leaves or grass clippings into catch basins or creeks.
  • Be careful not to let water collect on sagging tarpaulins or awnings.
  • Don’t let the trash can lids fill with water.
  • Check downspouts that can hold enough water for mosquito larvae to mature.
