    I looked at my tray under the SBB and saw a lot, I mean a lot of very small caterpillar looking worms wiggling around in the debris. I have seen some SHB around the outside of the hive and in the tray. None inside that I saw. The worms are cream colored and very small ~ about this size ~ what are they? What should I do about them?

    They are wax moth larva. Since it is staying over 50 at night here, I am taking my trays out.

    The moths are outside of the hive and are not really causing any problem. If the hive was in a tree, they would be below them there too. It's just natures way of cleaning up after itself.
