Who is legally required to pay for treating bed bugs in an apartment?

It depends.   The tenant must pay to have the bed bugs treated if his/her unit is the only unit that is infested unless the landlord caused the problem. The landlord must pay If more than one unit or any of the common areas, like hallways, community rooms, etc. are infested.
