Horry County to Conduct Aerial Mosquito Spraying July 21, 2020 (Revised)

On July 20, 2020 in County News

{Revised 7/21/20} The aerial mosquito spraying for Wednesday, July 22, 2020, has been moved to Tuesday, July 21, 2020, (inclement weather alternate date is still Monday, July 27, 2020), between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and dusk, weather permitting in the following locations:

  • Loris area: Lawson Rd/W Hwy 19/Daisy Rd/Suggs St
  • Aynor area: Roberts Rd/WM Nobles/Newton Rd/Vaught Rd

The Horry County Stormwater Department operates the mosquito control program and offers regular service to residents in the unincorporated area of Horry County. Anyone in the unincorporated areas can request mosquito spraying by calling the Road and Drainage Hotline at (843) 381-8000 or by using the free HCConnect App on their smartphone. To help keep our honeybee population safe, beekeepers are urged to contact Horry County Stormwater to identify the location of their colonies or fill out a no-spray zone form on our website.

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.
