No. Unless they don't prepare for it.

When I was full-time onsight our lease had an addendum that stated the apartment has been inspected and is bed bug free. The resident(s) sign that document. If bed bugs then appear, the resident(s) pay for treatment. So that is a yes!! If your lease doesn't have such an addendum, consult your legal and get one.

Yes. It's in their lease. However, if bedbugs are in more than one apartment in a quad and we cannot identify the source, we pay for the eradication.

The first time, no. We want residents to be encouraged to tell us so that we can inspect other units and treat properly. If it persists or they do not prepare appropriately, then yes.
