Pest control - who pays?

I recently discovered some really nasty bugs in my new apartment that Im renting. I informed the Regie who immediately send over pest control. So far so good, until I received the bill for 280 CHF. The Regie didnt mention anything about me having to pay anything for the pest control, so I was a bit surprised. In all places Ive lived in Europe it has always been the landlords cost to take. In this case Im also sure the bugs were all there before I moved in (its a very old building with a lot of crack for bugs to thrive in)

Is this standard procedures in Switzerland that the tenant pays for pest control regardless of whos the "guilty" party?
