What’s on the foundation?

I live in Atlanta and I lost one of my two hives last summer to small hive beetles (although at the very end if its life there were some wax moths too). I took everything apart, scraped off the foundations and frames and stuck them in the freezer for 4-5d. I stored them during the winter under my deck and when I went to check them today it looks like something's been living there. As you can see there are these long dark structures covered w white, and some small cigar-shaped (dead larvae) as well. Any guesses what this is? Need I be worried? Do I have to throw out the foundation? Throw out the frames?
