Battling Summer Mosquitoes

Sioux Falls, SD

The City of Sioux Falls is actively trying to get the summer mosquito problem under control.

Sioux Falls mosquito control trucks use technology to make sure they are spraying every neighborhood in the city. There is a GPS tracker system that shows exactly where the trucks have been.

The truck's fogger on the back starts when it is going above three miles an hour and stops when the truck it going over 17 miles an hour. Crews go across the city finding sensitive areas where they shouldn't spray for bugs - like near bee hives, butterflies, or where there are people that have different medical conditions.

Stephanie Gregory will have more from city officials on mosquitoes later on KELOLAND This Morning.
