What do you call 3 1/2 pounds of mosquitoes?

August 3rd, 2010 · 3 Comments

I would call them gross but in Taiwan apparently you will be calling Huang Yuyen the winner of a mosquitoes collecting contest?!?!  A  Taiwanese woman just might be the world’s top exterminator after catching three-and-a-half pounds worth of mosquitoes in a month.The Telegraph reports that Huang Yuyen from the Yunlin county in southern Taiwan easily beat out 72 other contestants in a contest organized by an insect trap-making company to see who could capture the most mosquitoes. The second-place winner’s haul was less than half of what Huang had.

Imbictus International, the company behind the contest, is requesting that Huang’s efforts be recognized by Guinness World Records.  I wonder if they were dead or alive?
