Hey guys, got some cigars in the mail today and it is smokin hot at my house. Should I freeze these???

How much continual temperature over 75 does it take before beetles hatch?

thanks ya'll!!!

Can't grab the link on my phone, but see this thread in the "All Cigar Discussion" forum: How to Freeze and the Science behind it. (It's in the stickies)

A great many of us swear by freezing our cigars under all conditions.

I don't freeze; I keep my wineador running at 66*F. When I get cigars in the mail in the heat, I just let them sit on the counter for about 1/2 hour or so to cool down then put them in the wineador.

I share this concern all summer. Those cigars sat in a UPS truck in 100* temps, or there abouts for a week? Maybe? Mailbox, then inside until I get them under control. If I'm traveling for work it may be close to a week more. While this always concerns me, I haven't had any issues, yet!

Yep - no question. Doesn't hurt a thing. Safe than sorry.

You anti beetles people, you.
What is wrong with the nice popping sound of a beetle or two as you kick back and enjoy a cigar. Kind of reminds me of the seventies and the popping sound of other smoking materials.:noon
