beetles, is it humidity or temperature causing outbread?

Has anyone really determined the couse of outbreaks of the buggers? Is it temperature or is it humidity that couses the outbreak and the eggs to hatch? In Australia, we live in temperatures that most time is over 80 closer to 90 and I have never had an outbreak. I am really vigilant in controlling humidity levels in the humidor and keep this at around 65-68%. The outside humidity is often 80-90%. Spoke to my tobacconist about this and he supports the theory about the humidity being the cause,but we have no scientific data in supporting this. Any one know for sure? I've been trying to research on the net and it seems to be a fairly even split with who believes what theory.

To be on the safe side, I have beetle traps placed in strategic places but so far, no signs of them... am I just lucky?
