The man was forced to sleep in a tent after hundreds of people broke into his home spiders who bit him.
Russell Davis, 55, first noticed wounds on his body within a week of moving to his apartment in Southbar, Kent, in 2020. Daily Mirror reports.
At first he thought spider bites were damage, until he finally found arachnids in his home 15 months later.
He told the BBC: “I was what you would call a banquet for these spiders when I slept.
“I am in pain. It feels like when I tremble, I have shards of glass in every part of my body where I was bitten. I sleep in a tent for about a week and a half. “
A severe ordeal forced him to struggle with sleep and mental health.
He explained: “In the afternoon I go in search of things. My mind is constantly on edge because I’m looking for cobwebs, spiders. I don’t want to live like that.
“It’s the worst thing for me, I’m not sleeping very well at the moment because it’s so hard in my head because I was bitten while I was sleeping.”
The 55-year-old man claims that Clarion’s housing staff refused to fumigate his apartment and pay for more intensive heat treatment.

He clarified that however, after expressing concern, Clarion organized the fumigation of corridors and stairwells in communal areas.
A Clarion spokesman said: “We appreciate how unpleasant and inconvenient pests can be, and we are sorry to hear that Mr Davis is suffering from this now. He has been rightly warned that under the terms of his lease, it is his duty to fight this pest infestation.
“Clarion pests are contracting to deal with utility problems, but we asked them to look into Mr. Davis’ situation, and they gave him some practical advice on how he can solve it.”
