Surf fishing musings from yesterday - how do sand fleas communicate?

Surf fishing at Topsail and not seeing many sand fleas to use for bait. When I do see some they are in a tight pod and it got me wondering how they communicate to stay together. Any ideas?

Clicks and whistles. If you listen close enough you can here them. 

 

Just put your ear in the wash for a few minutes, you'll hear them.

@wasabi_VA expect a bunch of jackass answers (mine included) but it's a pretty interesting subject that I'm sure will ended up with me down a rabbit hole while I'm sitting on the can.

On a beach this week, a half mile down the shore the next, or gone completely. It is the vanishing act that gets me, where have they gone? 
 

When I find them I don’t use them as bait, but do stand there and watch them. I might even dig a few up, which takes me back to my days as a kid when my sister and I would dig them up at Jones Beach or down in Wildwood. 
 

In Florida, find tHe mole crabs and you find the pompano and the pomp anglers. They will be lined up in their version of a picket line, four or five rods each, making in difficult for a plug chucker like me.

So.  I have returned from the rabbit hole....

 

Crabs communicate by a variety of methods. Everything from sounds made in their stomachs and by rubbing their appendages to using their anntena.

Something with the scents.  

 

Not a science guy.  Just a busdriver with a caffeine addiction.
