Ground Mosquito Spraying

On September 21, 2018 in Emergencies

Please note, all meetings for September 24-28 have been canceled due to the flooding.


Due to the flooding, Horry County Stormwater will be conducting ground spraying (from trucks) beginning at 4 a.m. and ending at 7 a.m. daily starting Tuesday, September 25, 2018, except Saturdays and Sundays 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.
