Small Hive Beetles?????
Our new hive is only two weeks old today and upon my second inspection I think we have a SHB. I attached two photos, one of the beetle and one of the larvae in the bottom. The larvae looks like wax moth??? Is this normal to have these pests at only two weeks with all new equipment? Where did they come from? What to do?
My guess is due to a new colony without a build up of bees is why they invaded.
