We have a problem with bed-bugs getting into our apartment from an adjoining unit through the walls. They are entering through the outlet covers in the living room and bedroom. The apartment management says we are liable for the cost of extermination since it is not a "gestational pest".
I have spent about $50-$75 on pesticides and drywall compound to seal the outlets and had to throw out our couch.
Are we liable or is this an issue our apartment management needs to fix?
