OSWEGO COUNTY, N.Y. -- Mosquito spraying was completed in the Toad Harbor area of Oswego County Saturday night.
The north shore of Oneida lake is a spot where the bugs breed in large numbers.
County health officials were hoping to reduce the threat of mosquito borne diseases such as Triple-E and West Nile Virus. Even though spraying helps control the population, experts say you should take precautions.
Make sure your fully clothed at dusk and dawn, and you use bug spray on parts of your skin that's showing. Homeowners should also eliminate standing water from their yards.
