What are my rights as a tenant regarding an ant infestation?

We have a major ant infestation in the home we are renting. We noticed an trap after we moved in and tried several of our own traps and remedies to no avail. When we requested our landlord pay for an exterminator they said it’s a known problem and would not cover that cost. What rights do I have?
