Dealing with Tobacco Beetle in your cigars
Horrendous as all this sounds, it is important not to get the problem out of proportion. 'Most of our customers some of whom have traded with us for 20 years or more, have never seen a weevil,' explained John Darnton, Sales Director of Havana Importers Hunters & Frankau. 'We do receive infected stock but we open and check every box as part of our EMS quality control system so, when we find it, we deal with it straight away.'
also emphasises the importance of keeping stock at carefully controlled low temperatures. '16°C to 18°C is the correct range in which to store cigars, and that's the way we keep our stock,' he
continued. 'Let it rise above 21°C and the weevil thrive.'
