On September 24, 2018 in Emergencies

Conway, South Carolina-Horry County Stormwater will be conducting ground spraying (from trucks) weather permitting in the following areas:

  • September 24, 2018-northern portion of the County (evening)
  • September 25, 2018-Carolina Forest area (morning) 

Morning and evening truck spraying will continue at various locations throughout the County.

In addition, aerial spraying later in the week is anticipated. Locations and timing are to be determined. 

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.
