Crayola announces carpet squares will go to carpet beetles
The makers of carpet squares are unveiling a cleaner to help combat the carpet beetle that has ravaged millions of homes around the world.
The carpet squares, which are made by American furniture company Woodland, have become the subject of a global epidemic.
The carpet squares’ popularity has exploded in the past year after they were featured on the cover of Time magazine.
The problem has been exacerbated by the fact that carpet squares do not use natural fibers, and the natural fibers can be hard to come by.
Carpet balls were developed in the 1970s to help eliminate the pest from carpeting and other products.
It has been proven to kill the carpet beetles that carry the carpeting beetle, which has spread to more than 200 million homes worldwide.
The products were recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration and will go on sale this summer in a limited supply to retailers in the United States.
Crayola is working with the American Academy of Environmental Medicine to develop a new carpet cleaner.
The new product will be available in limited quantities to the general public starting in July.
