Workers in Terminal 1 told KGTV-TV that they've seen rats in the halls and even in some restaurants.
U-T San Diego reported Los Angeles County environmental health inspectors checked 21 restaurants and food shops on Thursday and found rat droppings in two.
Airport officials say rodents are coming out because of ongoing demolition and construction as the airport overhauls its concessions and builds new stores and restaurants.
Spokeswoman Diana Lucero says the airport has hired an exterminator to deal with the problem.
