Sometimes the abdomen of a bee at rest is moving as if the bee is “panting.” Do bees breathe?

Bees can not pant; they don’t have lungs. However, bees do have membranes in their abdomen that act as diaphragms and aid in the flow of hemolymph inside their body, and aid in the movement of air through tracheal tubes and air sacs.
