    Students are telling about what they used to do when they were little. One student used to "collect bugs". Would insectos be the best word for bugs here?

    I am finding chinches and bichos as words for bugs, but I am not familiar with these words.

    Thank you for your help.

    Yes it is.
    Insectos would be the right word, bichos is good also but no so formal.
