On November 3, 2016 in General

Horry County will conduct mosquito spraying, weather permitting, in the following areas:

  • November 3 – South/Southeast of Loris-Cedar Branch Road, Hemingway Road, Williamson Circle Road areas and Highway 905 area between Red Bluff Road and Loop Circle

Aerial spraying will be conducted in the evenings usually between 7 p.m. and dusk 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
