Oswego, N.Y. - Oswego County health Dept has announced another horse has died from Eastern equine encephalitis, or Triple E.
The horse was stabled in the town of Williamstown. The health department says that people need to continue to take precautions, and protect themselves from mosqitos bites, as we have yet to have a wide spread frost.
The heatlh department says people need to continue to use insect repellents; limit outdoor activities around dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active; wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, shoes and socks when outdoors; and eliminate standing water around the home.
Repellents containing DEET are the most effective and should be used with caution and according to label instructions. Products containing picaridin and oil of lemon eucalyptus are also effective.
