These creatures crawled out of the vents. Family immediately forced out of their home

A Georgia family was forced to leave their home because bats had invaded it.

After about 80 bats broke into their home in Ardsley Park, a charming community three hours outside of Atlanta, Isaiah and Monica Grant were thrust into an unimaginable scenario. On January 29, the Georgia Department of Public Health declared their home to be a “imminent health risk,” forcing the family to vacate their rental.

In an interview with WSAV, Monica—who resides with her spouse, toddler, and infant—described their experience as “traumatizing.” On January 18, they saw a bat for the first time; nevertheless, a few days later, they discovered more of the avian creatures flying inside their house.

We were seated in the living room when three bats shot down the stairs. They started to emerge from the vents. “The children had already fallen asleep,” Monica recalled. That proved to be the family’s breaking point.

“We felt like there was a problem, we had to leave, we’re done.”

The Grants have been living with a neighbor since leaving their house. In an interview with News 3, Cathleen Barela, the property management company’s owner, stated that the business has communicated with Savannah Code Compliance as well as the family.

Barela clarified, “Code Compliance left a violation notice because of tenant pressure.”

She continued by saying that action was being taken to address the matter and that the notice demanded that the bats be removed. “We handled it as soon as we were informed, just like any other property manager would,” she continued.

The Grant family still has problems, even after the property management gave them promises. They had to take rabies vaccinations right away, which they had to conceal in their pockets. The main cause of rabies mortality in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is bats.

“There’s no cure for rabies.” “It’s either you receive the vaccination or you don’t make it,” Monica expressed concern.

According to Isaiah, it is quite difficult to tell if someone has been bitten by a bat. In order to assist pay for their growing medical expenses and the cost of a new house, the family set up a GoFundMe campaign.

Isaiah said on their fundraising page, “We have renters insurance, but they told us a bat infestation is not a covered loss.” “To file a claim, the house must have a covered loss even though it has been declared uninhabitable.”

Adding a playful tone, he said, “Dracula is real, y’all.”

On February 2, Isaiah updated fans and expressed their appreciation for the tremendous outpouring of support. They were given the option to temporarily reside in a furnished townhouse.

“While we determine our next course of action, we will be relocating to a townhouse for the next month,” he stated.

Fascinatingly, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Georgia is home to sixteen distinct species of bats. The CDC notes that even though the majority of bats are not rabies carriers, an infected bat cannot be identified by its appearance. Lab testing and confirmation of rabies is required.
