Doesn't a week in the freezer kill tobacco beetles?
Freezing or heating works, a kiln has lots of uses.

...... L. serricorne cannot tolerate the cold; adults die within 6 days at 4 °C, and eggs survive 5 days at 0–5 °C.

Life History

...... Development is incomplete at 17°C and adults die when exposed to 4°C for six days.

Management

...... Items can be placed in the refrigerator or freezer (16 days at 36°F, 7 days at 25°F or 32°F for four to seven days) to kill all stages. Place items in a plastic bag to reduce condensation problems during thawing. Heating small quantities of infested material in an oven (190°F for one hour, 120°F for 16 to 24 hours) also is effective.

...... A temperature of approximately 50°C (122°F) maintained for 24 to 36 hours is needed for effective control.
