Washington State officials find fourth Asian giant hornet nest

More murder hornets found

Another so-called murder hornets nest has been destroyed just across the border from British Columbia.

State officials indicate that a fourth nest, built by Asian giant hornets north of Seattle close to the Canadian border has been destroyed.

The Washington State Department of Agriculture tweeted out Thursday that the latest nest eradication came east of Blaine, Washington and is the fourth overall and third this year.

Officials said the queen they discovered was a slightly different color and that all the hornets were workers, which means no new nests would be created from it.
