This bill would require certain notification prior to mosquito control spraying applications. Specifically, the bill would require the State Mosquito Control Commission and all county mosquito control commissions to: (1) notify any registered beekeeper five days prior to performing within five miles of a registered apiary any mosquito control spraying application that may be toxic to honeybees; and (2) post notice on their website five days prior to any mosquito control spraying application. Additionally, the bill would require all mosquito control spraying applications to be conducted before dawn or after dusk. This bill is in response to a recent incident in Dorchester County, South Carolina when county officials, concerned about the potential spread of the Zika virus, conducted an aerial mosquito spraying operation after sunrise. As an unintended consequence, the spraying killed an estimated 2.5 million honeybees.
