Mosquito Spraying Scheduled for Multiple Locations on September 7, 2023

SECAUCUS, KEARNY, WEEHAWKEN – In a proactive move to combat the rising mosquito population and ensure the well-being of residents, local authorities have announced a comprehensive mosquito spraying initiative across three key locations on September 7, 2023.

  1. Fountain Park, Secaucus: Residents and visitors are advised to be aware of the scheduled spraying taking place between 2 AM and 7 AM. The park, a popular spot for families and fitness enthusiasts, will undergo a thorough treatment to reduce the mosquito menace.
  2. Columbia Ave, Kearny: This residential area will also be part of the mosquito control initiative. Local authorities have urged residents to keep their windows and doors closed during the spraying hours to avoid any potential health risks.
  3. Chestnut St, Weehawken: As part of the same initiative, Chestnut St in Weehawken will also be treated during the early morning hours. Residents are encouraged to take necessary precautions and cooperate with the authorities for a smooth operation.

The mosquito spraying is a preventive measure to curb the spread of mosquito-borne diseases and ensure a safer environment for the community. The Hudson Regional Mosquito Control website provides detailed information on municipal mosquito control activities in Hudson County. Mosquito control in New Jersey is mandated under Title 26, Chapters 3 and 9 of the New Jersey Health Statutes, with each county being responsible for providing mosquito control for its citizens. The Hudson Regional Health Commission is empowered by the Hudson County Department of Roads and Public Property to provide mosquito control for the citizens of Hudson County.

Authorities have reassured the public that the chemicals used are environmentally friendly and pose minimal risks to humans and pets. However, as a precautionary measure, residents are advised to stay indoors during the spraying hours and to cover any outdoor food or water sources. It’s also important to note that all Hudson County Parks are closed between 10:30 PM and 7:00 AM, and spraying is purposely done during these hours to avoid pedestrian traffic.

Local health departments will be monitoring the situation closely and will provide updates if necessary. Residents with concerns or questions are encouraged to reach out to their respective local health departments for further information or follow the Hudson Regional Mosquito Control on Twitter for instant updates on the program.

This initiative underscores the commitment of local authorities to safeguard public health and enhance the quality of life for its residents.
