I opened up a new box today that has been in the humidor for a couple a found this. It was only one stick! What do you guys think? Can a Beatle get through cellophane?

He's a little bastard so I'd name him John. ...right after checking all my sticks and considered freezing them and cleaning out the humidor with alcohol.

I'd go with Clarance Walker rather than John.

There is room beside Walt Disney in the deep freeze. Don't use alcohol unless you want to damage the wood.

She loves you, Man.

Lots of threads here on freezing, might want to give it a go to protect the rest of your stock.

Burn everything to the ground. But really, clean with Everclear and freeze those sticks.

Humidor is in the basement. I just checked the gauge and it fluctuates between 61 and 68 degrees.

Freezing these sticks tonight!

Really? This box was sealed in Plastic from the factory.

I just counted and I have 142 boxes. I'm not sure how I can logistically freeze all of them! HELP!!!

My opinion isn't worth the pixels and time it takes to type, but if I pulled a box out and opened the plastic right then... it was totally vacuum sealed, opened the box and found a beetle and never put that box back in, I might feel better about it. I would randomly check some of your other boxes just to make sure, as well if you bought multiple boxes at that time and you have other sealed maybe open one or two of those and inspect them. again just my :2

No!

Not alive, well then it still could have been John! Too soon?

My thoughts exactly.

I'm with these guys. If the box was sealed in plastic with no holes, then the problem is in all likelihood limited to that box. I'd freeze the box (follow the method in the stickies), clean out any cruft, and move on with life.

142 boxes x 24 cigars average per box (?) = a hell of a good time!!!!! Damn!!! Don't hate on the beetle, he wanted a head start!
