Mosquito Spraying Begins Next Week

Horry County Stormwater will begin spraying for mosquitoes by truck beginning next week, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. weather permitting. In addition, fogging trucks are anticipated to run between 4 and 6:30 a.m., especially around our parks, boat landings and athletic fields. Spraying will continue each week through the summer months, dependent on the weather.

To help keep our honeybee population safe, beekeepers should contact Horry County Stormwater to identify the location of their colonies or fill out a no-spray zone form on our website. In addition, horse owners are reminded to consult with their veterinarian about getting their horses properly immunized against Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) which is carried by mosquitoes and can be transmitted to humans.

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.

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.
