A Chinese inventor of ultrasonic flycatchers said here Tuesday that he has
mailed his patent invention to an international organization, which he hopes
will pass it on to US President Barack Obama.

Hu Xilin said,

"It is not hygienic for President
Obama to swat a fly with his hand. The machine can catch the insect alive

A famed private businessman, who is known as "Lord of the Flycatchers" in

The man, in his 50s, said the People for the Ethnic Treatment of Animals
(Peta) has shown an interest in accepting his fly catching devices and sending
the machine to the US President.

The organization said on its blog that "it had sent the president a
"handy-dandy" bug catcher so future intruders can be captured and released
outside," after Obama killed a fly with his hand during a TV interview with the
Canadian National Broadcasting Corporation.

Hu's invention, which was patented by the China State Intellectual Property
Office in 2007, is motor driven, and can trap flies with organic bait and an
ultraviolet lamp. It is the same size as a desktop printer.

The businessman in Yuyao City, in east China's Zhejiang Province, has
accumulated 10 million dried fly specimens, trapped by the machine.

He has sent hundreds of the machines for free to help catch flies in
disease-plagued regions in Japan, Congo and Vietnam.
