Mosquito Control Program

Horry County residents and visitors are concerned about recent reports
of mosquito-borne illness. To report a mosquito problem, please call the hotline at 843-381-8000 or submit an online service request by clicking here.

For specific information about mosquito-borne illness, please visit the Centers for Disease Control.

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.
