Default Infested!

Guess it was only a matter of time. I have a hatch of beetles in one of my boxes. I hope I caught it early enough since I've been going through my stock about every day now. That being said I purchased the "New Air" 28 bottle wine cooler, does anyone have this model? If so how is it and do you have cedar shelves for it? Damn beetles!

And this is precisely why I freeze EVERYTHING that comes in. If I kill all the eggs, I don't have to worry about a compressor failing in a VinoTemp during a heat wave or any other of the hundreds of possible things that can lead to an infestation.

I hope everything works out for you controlling the infestation.

For anyone who's unfamilair with freezing cigars, there's a sticky on the subject HERE

This is the same policy I take (even though I have a vino), and stories like this make me glad I do. Sorry to hear about your infestation, Jake, but I'm glad you caught it early.

Haha, right?

There are worse things, I had been telling the wife I need a wine cooler, but after I bought a Montague last year she was not hearing it to well. After showing her the cigar with beetles in it, I dropped it and said "They are going to be all over the house now!" It was easy to talk her into a wine cooler But yeah, there is a lot less room in the cooler than what I have now, I hope it all fits, if not the troops will be getting what I can't store

Do you have pictures? I would love to see them. Also do you know the box where the infestation came from?

It was a box of Tatuaje Unicos, the cigar is in the trash. I'll dig it out.

I was almost expecting to hear the culprit box was from a Swiss Chocolate factory. Nothing against those factories but anytime I have had an issue it was always with my chocolates.
Sorry to hear of your outbreak. I do hate these post because it always has me ripping out every cigar I own for inspection. Looks like I have my work cut out for me Saturday.

Yuck. Just getting my desktop regulated now. Still gotta go pick up a hydrometer. Glad I stay in our finished basement, never gets much above 70. Although I do know people who pay no mind to their temp sometimes it gets well over 80 in their humi, and they have never had problems.

Wow, thanks for posting these shots. I always imagines beetles being the size of flees... Good luck with the rest of your sticks.
