Flights at Kansas City International Airport were delayed for 15 minutes due to a spider infestation in the air traffic control center in Olathe, Kansas were infested by spiders. The type of spider has not been revealed as of yet, but the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that no passengers were in danger. A spider’s nest had hatched, which can produce from 400 to as many as 1000 spiders in larger species.
A number of air traffic controllers were bitten by the spiders and they were moved to a different part of the building. Once moved, the air traffic controllers could resume their work and flights got back to normal. An exterminator was called in to deal with the spider infestation. While air traffic control is considered one of the most stressful jobs in the world, workers are not usually dealing with spider infestations.
