Re: SHB Larva?
Small hive beetle larvae start out very small and grow rapidly. And, there are usually a lot of them once they start hatching. You will see them entering and exiting the capped brood. Wax moth larvae are generally fewer and tunnel under the comb leaving webs and poop as they go. Eventually the wax moth larvae get quite large and can be used as fishing bait. Post a picture, but chances are very good you have SHB.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
