Horry County to Conduct Aerial Mosquito Spraying

On August 10, 2018 in Events

Conway, South Carolina-Horry County will conduct mosquito spraying, weather permitting, in the following areas

  • August 14 & August 15 – Bucksport, Pee Dee Highway, Pitch Landing and Hwy 378 areas (if weather prevents the flight, the alternate date is August 16 and/or August 20).

Aerial spraying will be conducted 30-minutes prior to 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.  In addition, citizens who need to request spraying in their area can contact the Horry County Road & Drainage Hotline at 843-381-8000.
