Onondaga County says it could conduct aerial spraying as early as Wednesday after additional evidence of EEE was confirmed in mosquito pools in the Cicero Swamp area.

In Onondaga County, three positive samples have been found around the Cicero Swamp. Two from traps on East Taft Road and one on Route 298.

In Oswego County, they had four more samples from the Toad Harbor Swamp test positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis. The total of positive tests this month is now six. Additionally, officials say they are awaiting test results from tissue taken from a horse in West Monroe that died Aug. 9. The horse exhibited neurological symptoms similar to encephalitis.

The timing of the spraying will be determined by weather conditions and other factors, and when it happens we will let you know. AccuWeather says that Thursday may have the best conditions for spraying.
