PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia area’s transit agency is dealing with a spider problem at one station in the city.
KYW-TV (http://cbsloc.al/2utfAKR ) reports the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority has hired an exterminator to battle the bugs that keep dropping down onto waiting passengers at its station in Northern Liberties.
A SEPTA spokesman says that agency has also been cleaning light fixtures where a lot of the spiders have been hiding.
The station says it’s noticing cleaning fixtures and fewer dead spiders at the station, but says a fair number of live spiders are still emerging at night to bug passengers like Adrian Hattaway.
