Horry County to Begin Ground Mosquito Spraying

On April 10, 2019 in County News

Conway, South Carolina-Horry County will conduct ground mosquito spraying, weather permitting, at various locations throughout unincorporated Horry County starting Tuesday, April 16, 2019. Spraying is typically conducted between dusk and 11 p.m. 

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 keep the honeybee population safe, beekeepers are urged to identify the location of their colonies by visiting our website or by calling the Horry County Road & Drainage Hotline at (843) 381-8000.
