NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.
Mosquito spraying will begin in North Myrtle Beach in May and last through the middle of November, city officials said Friday.
The city plans plans to spray every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday starting on May 4 as long as weather is dry and winds are light, according to a news release.
City officials said beekeepers should contact Johnny Bruton at 843-280-5536 or via email, so staff can visit their property to “ensure the hives are not negatively impacted by the spraying program.”
Patrick Dowling, the city’s spokesman, said the city has run the program for years, and it is safe for everyone. The city does not provide any guidance for pet owners, but Dowling said they should probably be kept indoors during the spraying.
“We encourage people to use the (link) provided to learn more about how that can protect themselves from mosquitoes, and minimize opportunities for mosquitoes to flourish on their property,” he said.
The city’s morning route begins at 5:30 a.m. and night routes start 90 minutes before sunset.
