Tenant or Landlord responsible for bed bugs?


I am a renter in this apartment community since one year. recently i found that something was biting me. They called up the pest control and placed monitors. couldnt find anything. later they sent sniffer dog and the dog says i have bed bugs but i dont see any. now the apartment management is asking me to pay for the pest control treatment which would cost 1000$ aprox.(for each treatment it costs 250$, and it may take 3 -4 vistis) whos responsibility is this. they are sayin that since its in your apartment you have to pay for it. apartment mgr is working with exterminator to set appointment, but wants me to pay for it. Please advice & thanks in advance.
