Go into the hive and check for SHB. If nothing looks amiss, it is Goldenrod honey being processed, and the larva are drones being kicked out for the winter.
If it is SHB, you need to take immediate action.

If you are too new to make a judgment when you go into the hive, you might want to contact this guy and ask him if he could come over and take a look.
