sure can, they will work great.
try to clean off the webbing they leave behind, the bees will do ther rest.

were the hives they came from weak? if they were strong i wouldnt expect to see waxmoth larve in them
on the comb.

might want to make sure the hives dont have too much empty space that the bees cant protect.

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.
