State awards $500,000 in mosquito control grants
Question of the Day
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The state has awarded $500,000 in mosquito control grants to nearly 100 cities across South Dakota.
The grants are intended to help control mosquitoes and help prevent the spread of the West Nile virus.
The South Dakota Department of Health says all applying communities received funding. The grants range from $1,000 to $3,000. The awards were based on each city’s population and its history of West Nile virus cases through 2013.
Health officials say the state has seen more than 2,100 confirmed West Nile virus cases since 2002. Thirty-two people have died as a result of the virus during that period.
