LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — Passengers at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport say they have been waiting for flights with mice recently.

Airport officials are blaming construction work for creating openings that are letting mice in. They say they are working to clear the terminal of the unwanted guests.

Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean says the airport is surrounded by woods and grasslands. And since this summer the side of the terminal facing the runways has been open for a construction project to improve security and passenger access.

The airport spokesman told The Baltimore Sun that a pest control company has set hundreds of traps inside and outside of the terminal. The spokesman says getting rid of the mice is a major priority for the airport.
