    Default Small white worms or ?

    went thru my 10 hives this morning...9 of 10 were ok... the one with a problem was a full hive split into 2 as a nuc....the bees had left the hive except about 3-400 ....the white worms or pupae ? were a 7-8 mm or a 1/4 inch long ..they also had a lot of brown fibrous casings in the bottom...what are they? ...i pulled the divider out of the hive .i also cleaned out the worms. also pulled two frames out that the worms had attached themselves to the frame....hopefully the other side of hive will clean up what i had missed?

    Brown and fibrous would be wax moths. Slimey would be small hive beetles.
