Beekeepers and Organic Farmers

Beekeepers and organic farmers may wish to avoid the insecticides used with adult mosquito control. Problems may arise if these insecticides come into contact with honey bees, as honey bees are susceptible to many insecticides. In fact, pesticides are a major cause of honey bee deaths. Horry County has chosen to grant courtesy no-spray requests to organic farmers as well by not fogging within approximately 100 ft of the approved location. To let us know about your honey bee population or organic farm so we may help to protect it during our mosquito spray program, please fill out and submit the form at the bottom of this page. The county will require a copy of your licensing and you will be given consideration by the County to the extent feasible and practicable. Note that it takes at least 24 hours to update the online map in order to honor an approved no-spray request.
