Horry County to Conduct Aerial Mosquito Spraying in Little River and Socastee Areas

Horry County will conduct mosquito spraying in the following areas, weather permitting:

  • Thursday, August 19, 2021: Little River area including the areas of Rum Bluff, Hwy 90, N Hwy 57, and Hwy 179. In the event of inclement weather, the make-up day is Monday, August 23, 2021.

Aerial spraying will be conducted 30-minutes prior to sunset and 30-minutes after sunset, weather permitting. 

The chemicals used for mosquito control spraying are approved by the EPA and pose minimal risk to humans or animals. Individuals with asthma or other respiratory illness may wish to stay indoors and close windows and doors during spraying. In addition, homegrown fruits and vegetables should be washed, scrubbed, and/or peeled before eating.

To help keep our honeybee population safe, beekeepers are urged to contact Horry County Stormwater to identify the location of their colonies. You can submit the location of your hive online here.

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.
