No Flies On Him

by | 1st, June 2004

‘FEW of us like flies. But Hu Xilin hates flies. The businessman from Zhejiang province, eastern China, hates flies so much he’s made it his life’s work to wipe them out.

He began to truly despise flies when one of them landed in a dinner as he dined with a client. The deal, worth £13,000, went sour – and Xilin blamed the fly and all fly kind.

He vowed revenge and has devised special contraptions to trap and kill flies. And he’s been successful, and has to date killed an estimated eight million flies over ten years (40kg of flies!).

But it’s not enough, and at a cost of £20,000, he’s recruiting a ‘swat’ team of fly killers.’
