They are either small hive beetle larvae or wax moth larvae. Your bees are cleaning them out of the hive. You definitely want them out of the hive and dead. The SHB's normal course is to feed off of honey and pollen then drop out of the hive and burrow in the ground and pupate. Then they turn into adults fly back to the hive and do more destruction in your hive.

   The life cycle of a SHB is the adults fly up to 10 to 12 miles away and into the hive just before sunset and will start laying eggs this is when the damage is done your hive will be long gone by the time the lava will go to the ground  to pupate.  Also SHB can live outside hive on sugary fruits like peaches, watermelon, cantaloupe and pears.
