What are theses holes in my cigars?

Holes in your cigars

You may find at some point that your cigars have tiny holes in them. If this is the case, you should immediately remove them from your cigar humidor. This is probably a tobacco weevil problem. Eggs or larva were not cleaned from the leaves before the cigar was rolled. Throw the cigars away. If you want to salvage them, place them in the freezer for at least 72 hours. This will kill the critters and ensure that no additional eggs hatch.
