Is landlord responsible for bedbug infestation?

Question: I have lived in my apartment for just over three months, and I thought everything was going well until last week. That is when I started noticing itchy bumps on my body in the morning. When I showed them to my friend, he told me I had bedbugs. When I contacted my manager and showed her the bites on my arms, she refused to accept responsibility and produced a "Bedbug Addendum" that I had signed as part of my lease. She said that this addendum completely waived my right to hold the management responsible for any bedbug problem. Then she said I would have to pay for professional extermination services. Does this Bedbug Addendum relieve my landlord of all responsibility...
