SHB hiding below screened bottom board

SHB hiding below screened bottom board

I was unable to pull my hive apart today as I got home too late, but I noticed a lot of bees running around the white slide-in board that goes underneath the screened bottom on my hive. I pulled it out and saw a bunch of hive beetles being forced into the side crevice of the white board by the bees. When I pulled it out further, I noticed that some SHB larvae was laid in the crack where the board slides in. I’ve never seen a lot of SHB around the frames of my hive, just on the top cover and bottom areas. Should I be worried that my bees will die? What should I do to get rid of the SHB in the bottom? It freaked me out because I’ve never actually seen the larvae.
