Bugs 'terrible' in northwoods

It's a bad year for mosquitoes, and other biting insects, in the northwoods.

Diane Paneitz of Hogan's General Store in Manitowish Waters says she can't remember another year when they've been this bad. She says even with bug spray, you can expect some bites.

Some stores in the U.P. are running out of bug spray, but Paneitz says that problem hasn't spread to her part of northern Wisconsin yet.

She says the bugs don't seem to be keeping any summer tourists away.
