Thanks for Retuning!

Huang Yuyen, from Yunlin county in southern Taiwan, beat 72 rivals with a catch weighing in at more than 1.5 kilogrammes (3lbs 5oz), according to Imbictus International, the insect trap-making company that organised the contest.

The haul was more than double that of her nearest rival.

The company has sent an application to Guinness World Records asking that Miss Huang be recognised as the world’s leading killer of the pest.

Mosquitoes have been a major public health hazard in Taiwan, especially as carriers of malaria until its official eradication on the island in 1965. They are still responsible for the spread of dengue fever.
