Q.With the weather being so hot these days, are beetles expected to be a problem? I’ve never had them, however I now have some humidors in a room that isn’t air-conditioned. Are these things that much of a major problem?
– Bill W. in PA
A. Not really that much. As long as your temp and humidity remain within the recommended levels, 65-75 degrees and 65-70% RH, you should be OK. If you notice the temperature climbing toward the 80-degree mark and your cigars start to feel a little softer than usual, try lowering the humidity by removing the humidifier and let the RH dip closer to 65%.
Another solution is to temporarily move the humidors to a cooler spot in the house during the summer months. If you have a well-insulated humidor – one with thick walls – that will help. As always, check your cigars regularly for suppleness and any unusual little pin-holes in the wrappers.
