Mosquito Control Program

Horry County residents and visitors are concerned about recent reports
of mosquito-borne illness.

For specific information about mosquito-borne illness, please visit the Centers for Disease Control.
For specifics about the Zika virus, please visit this CDC page. For more information on the Zika virus and how to protect yourself and your family, call the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control's toll free Care Line at 1-800-868-0404.

Horry County believes that the best way its residents can protect themselves is by reducing breeding sources. Breeding sources for Zika and related mosquito-borne illnesses are
primarily water-filled containers left around homes and businesses. Tipping and tossing water-filled containers once a week can significantly reduce mosquito populations.
