Horry County to Conduct Aerial Mosquito Spraying in Little River and Socastee Areas

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

  • Thursday, August 19, 2021: Little River area including the areas of Rum Bluff, Hwy 90, N Hwy 57, and Hwy 179. In the event of inclement weather, the make-up day is Monday, August 23, 2021.

Aerial spraying will be conducted 30-minutes prior to sunset and 30-minutes after sunset, 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. You can submit the location of your hive online here.

In addition, citizens who need to request spraying in the unincorporated areas of Horry County (outside city limits) can contact the Horry County Road & Drainage Hotline at 843-381-8000 or by the online form found on our website.

Horry County Legacy Business Recognition: Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union

 The Horry County Historic Preservation Commission’s Legacy Business Recognition Program will recognize the Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union on July 21, 2021, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Myrtle Beach branch located at 1010 21st Avenue North at 1 p.m. The ceremony is free and open to the public.

 On April 28, 1958, the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base Federal Credit Union (MBAFB), now known as Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union, was established to provide needed financial services to the civilian and military personnel serving at the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. The MBAFB Credit Union was originally a part-time operation with one employee located in a one-room office in the base combat support facility. Over the years, the Credit Union charter was amended and the company expanded and diversified its membership. With the announced closure of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base in 1991, the MBAFB Credit Union changed its name to Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union. Join us as we celebrate with this company for its 62-years in business.

 The Horry County Legacy Business Recognition Program pays tribute to local businesses that have contributed to the economic heritage of Horry County for more than 50 continuous years.

 For more information, contact Lou Conklin, Senior Planner, with Horry County Planning & Zoning at (843) 915-5340.
