Reminder: Register Your Bee Hives in Horry County

Horry County Stormwater conducts regular mosquito treatment in the unincorporated areas of Horry County. To help keep our honeybee population safe, beekeepers are urged to contact Horry County Stormwater to identify the location of their colonies. 

If you have recently become a bee hive owner, or have added additional hives in new locations, please register your bee hive with Horry County Mosquito Control. With mosquito season just around the corner, we want to make sure that we protect our bees. Click here to utilize our easy to use no-spray form.

If you own an existing bee hive and want to verify that you are listed with us, please check out our map listed on our website.

In addition, citizens who need to request spraying in the unincorporated areas of Horry County (outside city limits) can contact the Horry County Road & Drainage Hotline at 843-381-8000 or by the online form found on our website.
