Do you have tenant cover costs for pest / cockroach removal?

The best price I've found is $49 for first treatment for cockroaches and $99 per quarter after that with a 1 year commitment.  Would you have a tenant cover any of the costs for this or pay for all of it yourself as the landlord?

 I think a tenant should pay for that.

I make the tenant confirm the rental is pest-free prior to occupancy. Then they take responsibility for pests after occupancy, just like I take responsibility for my personal home.
