HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – On October 22, Horry County will begin mosquito spraying in Wampee and Little River. Ground spraying operations will run from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. and aerial spraying will be conducted from 7:00 p.m. until dusk. All operations will run Monday through Thursday, weather permitting.

According to a release from the Horry County Government, the chemicals used for mosquito control spraying are EPA-approved and pose minimal risk to both humans and animals. It is advised that individuals with asthma or other respiratory illness may wish to remain indoors with both windows and doors closed during the spraying, according to the release. The release also suggests, homegrown fruits and vegetables be washed, scrubbed or peeled prior to eating.

In an effort to keep the honeybee population safe, beekeepers are asked to contact Horry County Mosquito & Spraying to identify the location of their colonies.

Citizens with requests for spraying in their area, or have concerns, questions or complaints should call Horry County Road & Drainage Hotline at (843) 381-8000.
