Beetles. Ever get them ?

So, I was smoking a bunch of seconds the other day, whilst I was carp fishing. I started thinking, "when was the last time I saw a tobacco beetle, or signs thereof. ". So, both me and myself pondered this, and decided it's been a long time. Turn of the century, while boom cigars were phasing out , you could find holes, destruction and once in a box of Flor de Allonse(sp), a whole colony. I haven't seen anything in years. Is everyone fumigating,or other processes to ensure insect death ? Just wondering.

Nope, never.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it

Freezing them to -20F will kill them. Last time I had beetles was in the aftermath of Katrina, where my coolers couldn't stay cold enough to prevent them from hatching.
Every time you think you've become too cynical, the world finds a way to teach you that the real problem is that you haven't become cynical enough

Free speech is free speech is free speech. There is no qualifier.

If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention.

Never attribute malice to that what can be explained as stupidity.

Unborn lives matter too.
