What are these grubs in my hives?
And what danger to the hive are they?

Wax moth larvae is my guess. Any spider web looking stuff in there?

Looks like wax moth larvae to me as well. I've pulled a couple of those out of my hives, but smaller.

Wax moths. Tighten you hives up, to much empty space the bees can’t patrol and drag out the riff raff. As it heats up and the hive grows you can give them more space

And yes they will slime your hives and ultimately kill them

Excellent bait when ice fishing for panfish.

Wax moths will wreck a hive. Better get it fixed up

I get wax worms in weak hives. I’ll also get Small Hive Beetle larvae in pollen patties at times. I never have problems with either with strong hives. If they’re in your comb, freeze the comb for a day.
