CRISFIELD, Md.- Thousands of spiders have invaded the residential community of Heron Landing in Crisfield, causing concern for many neighbors. The spiders appeared suddenly two days ago in the community, according to neighbors, and they have no idea where they came from or why they are there.

Dolores Hill, lives in the neighborhood, said, "It's getting to the point you can't get out the door without the spider webs being all over your face and spiders crawling up the walls and the down spouts. You know all across the patio, I can't even use the patio at this point because I'm afraid if you go out there, you can actually see them running backwards and forward." 

Hill said she contacted City Hall about the issue but was told she would need to get and exterminator at her own expense. Hill said the problem is bigger than having the average household spiders around the yard; she believes the infestation may be coming from the wooded area near the neighborhood.

A call from WBOC to Crisfield's city manager for comment about the issue has not been returned.
