Flies have ruined John Berry’s summer so now he’s taking revenge

The Tokoroa man is on a mission to kill 58 million flies with his homemade fly traps, eradicating the “filthy” pests from his town.

But New Zealand’s “Bugman” Rudd Kleinpaste has warned against total annihilation, saying flies fill a vital role in the environment getting rid of the rubbish no other bugs will.

Berry has made nine fly traps so far out of 200 litre drums, recycled cans, and plastic.

Seven traps have already been set up around the outskirts of town, with the help of volunteers willing to give the traps a go.
