    Default How do you say "bugs" in Spanish

    For example i was trying to say "Close the lid so we don't get dust or bugs in it".

    Do you just say 'Insectos"?

    Cierra la tapa entonces no estaria polvo o ____

    Thank You,
    Michael

    Hi!, Although I don't understand the specific context of the sentence my guess would be Cierra la tapa para que no entre polvo ni insectos/bichos... Bichos is less formal than insectos...

    Hope it helps

    I agree with danii.

    Cierre la tapa para evitar que entre polvo o insectos.

    Hope I could help!!!!
