We had a robbing incident a few days ago, after reducing entrance found this with small larva mixed in. Can anyone help?

Hopguard cardboard strips shredded by the bees?
Or is that stuff from some kind of tree or shrub? It looks like it is on the ground in the back.
Is that yellow stuff pollen?
The small larvae may be hive beetle larvae.
Where are you located? You can add it to your profile

Thinking it might be pollen? Located in North Georgia. We didn’t treat with hop guard cardboard.

I'm thinking it may be some kind of flowers from a tree or shrub that got washed up by rain.
Did you clean out any frames from that hive? Are bees still in it? If so, the bees could have put the larvae and bad pollen outside the hive when they cleaned up. .

I agree, looks like some kind of bloom that the rain has washed up, looks like melted pollen also. Need a little more info or background on the hive.

What does it feel like, any smell?

Looks like corn silks almost.
