A Taiwanese woman has won a $3,000 prize by catching roughly 4 million mosquitoes in just one month.
Her collection of mosquitoes doubled that of her nearest rival.
The company sent an application to Guinness World Records asking that Huang be recognized as the world’s number one killer of mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes have been a major public health hazard in Taiwan, especially because the insects carry malaria. They are still responsible for the spread of dengue fever as well.
