Passengers at BWI Airport say that while they've been waiting for flights lately, they haven't been waiting alone.

Mice have been keep them company.

Construction work has created openings that are letting in the little critters, airport officials say. And since the airport is already surrounded by woods and grasslands, it's not hard to figure out where the mice came from.

The side of the terminal facing the runways has been open for several months due to a construction project to improve security and passenger access, says airport spokesman Jonathan Dean.

A pest control company has set hundreds of traps inside and outside of the terminal, Dean told The Baltimore Sun. Getting rid of the mice is a major priority for the airport, he said.
