First, this is a nightmare and it really sucks that you have to go through this, especially this time of year. Second, I’m sorry but I can’t resist the autocorrect spelling in the title of the post in light of the 40th anniversary.
Another option would be to introduce one of the beetles to an avant-garde multimedia artist beetle (female) from Japan. Let them get close, and pretty soon she’ll start tagging along to beetle meetings and generally insinuating herself into the beetles’ creative process. The original beetles will ultimately produce some of their best work during this time, but eventually they’ll grow weary of it all and go their separate ways and leave the humidor. RIP JL
