At the onset of rainy season in Southeast Asia, mosquitoes are set to multiply and spread disease.

It’s a good thing that Taiwan has its own mosquito-buster! Yuyen Huang is Taiwan’s winner in a national contest that gets participants to kill as many mosquitoes as they can in a month’s time.

Huang was able to catch more than 3 pounds (1.36 kg) of mosquitoes and took home US$3,000 for her efforts.

That equated to swatting and killing more than 4 million mosquitoes in just one month, or approximately 90 mosquitoes each minute.

Now try to beat that!
