zenith:Yes I do. A couple of Ave Maria's, about 7 Genesis/ Project and a couple of singles, thus my growing concern. I did calibrate the hygrometer and it was all good until spring hit here in PA. and it's been 80+ humidity since.Temp in my house has been close to 72. I guess I better switch to the glycol beads instead of the basic sponge filled humidifier I have. I tried putting some rice in there to no avail.
Rain:Before you jump to KL, make sure you know what you're doing.For a humi, no cooler or wineador, I would go with beads.

Beads ARE Kitty Litter! Kitty Litter IS beads!
Cigary:When summer hits is when we see a lot of posts about High RH in our humidors. Here in Hotlanta we see some real moist days and it used to play havoc with my humidors. KL is one answer but if you want a quick fix I've used those small silica pouches we've all seen....I have a few that are small and others that are twice as large and they work very well and absorb RH pretty quickly. That's just a short term fix though and I'm sure you want something that will keep them at the RH you like.
Beads work great...tends to be expensive if you have a large collections
KL works just as great....only takes a day to dial in the RH you want
Floral Foam.....it works but you take a risk of this stuff getting mold/bacteria
Gels....they work but that can get expensive with a large collection
50/50 mixes....this works well but you need to ensure that you have a 50/50 mix and that means you are married to this type of humidification if you use it.
Boveda Paks....work very well but not a great idea for large collections
