Great. Thanks. Also what is the behavior in which bees rub parts of their body with legs. I don't know if this is a different action, but what about rubbing their proboscises?

They use their legs to clean the proboscis and antennae to cleanse palate and smell glands like we would rinse mouth or blow nose.

Great video! How did you do that?
Also, what's the purpose for a bee cleaning its proboscis, antennae, and "smell glands?"
