Should You Get Your Humidor Ready for the Summer?

Now that the warm months are right around the corner, humidity and temperatures can rise quickly around the area. It’s important that you keep a close eye on your cigar humidor as the seasons begin to change. There are a few reasons why you might need to check in on your cigars.

  • Cigar Beetles thrive in tropical environments, and a hot room or office, with an extra humid humidor make for a perfect environment for young tobacco beetles. 
  • Humidity can build in your humidor quickly during these upcoming months, causing mold and decay.
  • If you’re more of a seasonal smoker (I hear they exist), then you need to check on your cigars to make sure they are properly humidified altogether. Hopefully, you didn’t let them dry out over the dry winter months.

Whether you take impeccable care of your cigars during the year, it’s always a good idea to periodically check on your humidor to make sure it is properly maintained. Check your humidity levels to make sure everything is in order. Check all of your cigars for any possible cigar beetle damage as well.

If you happen to open up your humidor and you realize that you’re running low, stop by the cigar shop and grab some new cigars to fill your fresh humidor.

If you need a new humidor, sign up for Mr. G’s Newsletter and keep an eye out for upcoming specials.
