landlord did not disclose cockroach problem

By Tenant

we’re new to the area and didn’t dream there would be a cockroach problem. we were concerned about pests: mosquitos, ticks, fleas, black widows, snakes because we have two young children and two animals. and the owners gave us info. about the area and said mosquitos (that were swarming as we were speaking to them) were the only downfall to the house. 

we moved in and saw large roaches in the windowsills on the first night. the next day in the garbage can. then in the basement, the kitchen and even in my son’s room and the kids bathroom.

they said their not responsible for an exterminator so we hired our own. we’re still seeing some even after they sprayed twice. this is distressing for me as i never thought i would have to share a house with cockroaches.

are they responsible?
