After an ongoing battle with their landlord, a Brentwood, Tennessee woman who recently was treated for a brown recluse spider bite – and allegedly found dozens more in her apartment – said this week that she and her partner are moving out of the complex.

Angela Wright, 25, was rushed to a local hospital in June, not able to walk and to hallucinate, after she was reportedly bitten in her apartment, Fox News previously reported.

Wright and her fiancee, Victoria Owen, told the management of the Views of Brentwood apartments about the incident, which sent a pest control service to spray the house. But the effort proved futile, as the couple continued to find spiders ‘to the left and to the right,” Wright said at the time.

In total, Wright said they 50 brown recluse spiders in the apartment.

The spiders are poisonous. Its bite can cause fever, rash, chills, and nausea, among other side effects. In Wright’s case, the bite in the first resulted in arm pain and small bumps on her chest.

“Everything they said was: ‘Yes, sorry to hear it.” They are sprayed and that don’t really help our situation,” Owen told People in a recent interview. “We even took three brown recluse spiders. We told them at that time that we wanted.”

First, the management company allegedly told Wright and Owen that they required a 60-day and a $2,200 fee for the termination of the lease. In addition, 1 September was the earliest date at which they were told that they could move, People reported.

The brown recluse bite sent Wright to the hospital, Wright said.

On Monday, but the couple was informed that they would be able to go out faster than they thought, Owen told Fox News.

“Our apartment manager is someone that wants our lease, so they put our lease in that person’s name and the removal of us,” she said.

People reported that the couple will still owe $1,200 before they officially left, however.

“Who knows what will happen in the next people.”

While the couple is happy to move, Owen’s concern for the new tenants.

“I take it that they’re not aware of the other people about the living conditions as we were not informed,” she said to Fox News.

“Who knows what will happen in the next people,” she added to People.

A spokesperson for the Views of Brentwood forwarded Fox News’ request for comment to Brookside Properties, the complex of the parent. A spokesman for Brookside Properties do not respond.

Angela Wright was not immediately available for comment.
