>Ok , I noticed in my hive that some of the larva seem to be larger than the cell they are in! I thought the larva should only fill one cell not burst into other cells. Everthing seems fine with the hive. I just thought it looked funny.

Bee larvae do not move fast enough that you can see them. They move, but about the rate of the minute hand on the clock. You don't see it. If you see them moving then it is a pest, wax moth, small hive beetle, something. If they are not moving, then maybe they are queen cells.
