While many bed bugs hide in mattresses, some may also hide in a sofa or chair, or behind wall paper or pictures. They are also known to congregate beneath flooring and inside electrical outlets and on personal items including electronic devices. Thoroughness is the only real way to get rid of bed bugs. Every corner and crevice needs to be searched. As you might guess, this means that simply getting rid of an infected mattress will not totally solve the problem. Since their reappearance, researchers have found that the new bed bugs are much more resistant to chemicals that have previously been in use. Insecticides that are often used for roaches and similar insects do not work on bed bugs.
