    Greetings BOTL! I so wish I had a picture for this issue. So I haven't had any problems with Beetles or any other type of bug. Humidor is fine...the only fight is humidity in an ultra dry climate. However, I just bought a few boxes...they came in the mail the same day I got back in town. I...

    First off, it's nice to see these boards back to their normal activity. A couple of months ago I thought they would never get back to normal. So anyway, we all know that beetles hatch at certain "high" temperatures and humidities. This thread is not about those specific temperatures and...

    Well I just found a beetle. Well 2 actually. I popped open the humidor to check on my stash to only see this strange thing crawling around. :painkiller: Big problem..I started frantically inspecting every cigar to see if anything had been damaged. I had no clue where the beetle could have came...

    Sadly, there have been plenty of threads around on beetles this summer as the temperatures soared. I had a small outbreak last week in which two sticks were destroyed and a few others contaminated. I have since frozen my whole stash and they are doing a final leg in the fridge getting back...

    Damn it. Reference my other thread about re-arranging to get my coolidor stocked up and I also found a damn beetle in my desktop humi. Checked all my cigars and found one with a beetle hole in it(maybe 2). All the cigars(except this one) promptly went into the refrigerator and will go in the...

    Is this a beetle hole? Just found it in one of my boxes. Its in the freezer now. I have frozen everything kept the CCs. I guess I was paranoid. So.. now in the freezer they go. To me it looks like a rip in the rapper as its not perfectly circular. Still.. freaky. Can any one tell?

    So I just spent the last few hours reading about Beetlejuice and am a bit nervous about my cigars. I found lots on how to get rid of them but I couldn't however find what it is they do besides eat through tobacco. I see a lot of guys grab a stick from a b&m and smoke it right there. Is it...

    Especially since with the temperature rise up here in Canada, it's been as high as 72°F in my tupperdor. So I just put all of my sticks in the refrigerator and they'll be visiting the freezer tonight for 48-72hrs. Let's just say I can already see the look on my girlfriend's face when she opens...

    I know that there are a lot of threads on beetle and freezing, but I couldn't find any answers to the question I have. The question is: should one be concerned about freezing if the sticks come in a cello wrapper or the box is new, sealed and un-opened? Can beetles get into a stick that's in...

    I'm not to sure about this one guys. I fond this one cigar with this one hole in it. No dust. No signs of any other cigars in the same box with holes. This hole is kind of big. I would say So I'm not sure if this was a hole in the filler and I happened to knock it off while I was moving all my...

    After inspecting cigars from a recent order I noticed these little buggers inside the cellophane. They are dead now but managed to claim two cheap sticks before their demise. I have contacted the vendor simply as a heads up.

  18. General Cigar Discussion
    So I have been reading about beetles and, though I have not had an issue yet, I am a bit nervous since I have been stocking up in a major way on the higher end padrons. 2 questions: 1. It seems that having a wine cooler protect the cigars is a way to avoid freezing or to, at least, seriously...

    What is the most expensive cigar you have ever seen contaminated with beetles? I have only seen beetles once and that was in a b&m somewhere and the beetles were hanging in a box of $5 cigars.

    Sorry if this may seem like a stupid question but I've never experienced beetles before. I, like many of you, took advantage of CIs $1 sampler last week. I got it today and when I opened the box there were two pinhole sized holes in the cigar. They look to go deeper than the wrapper but it...
