Aerial Mosquito Spraying for August 24, 2020

On August 21, 2020 in General

Horry County Government will conduct aerial spraying for mosquitoes Monday, August 24, 2020, (inclement weather alternate date is Wednesday, August 26, 2020), between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and dusk, weather permitting in the following locations:

  • S Hwy 905/Cox Ln/Camp Swamp Rd/Barker 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.
