I wonder if a heat gun would push them out.:)
Not bad ideas I guess but leaving a piece of nice furniture outside in the elements makes me cringe a bit. The heat gun idea strikes me as more workable.
They have not effected me yet but bed bugs are epidemic in Chicago and the insects have found their way not only into hotel rooms and residences but also into office environments.
The best treatment options seem to be cryogenic temperature sprays (e.g. liquid nitrogen) or systems that raise room temperatures to abnormally high temps very quickly.
Still sticking with my suggestions to call an exterminator though before wasting lots of money guessing or on pesticides availed to consumers. Exterminators should have licenses and access to things we normal mortals do not. And I must be honest, we tend to think more is a good approach. Responsible exterminators use the minimal amounts of chemicals necessary.
