Bugs (also known as Bosco's Rule) is a Larger than Life cellular automaton, and perhaps one of the most studied such rules. The rule was devised by Kellie Evans. The alternative name "Bosco's Rule" is derived from a sparky period 166 oscillator called "Bosco" (see Oscillators).

Still lifes
The most common still life is the block, similar to its Life equivalent but as a 6×6 square as opposed to a 2×2.
Other larger still lifes exist, resembling thick circles.
Oscillators
Some p2 and p3 oscillators are known in Bugs.
One particularly notable oscillator is a reflectorless flipping oscillator known as Bosco, oscillating at a period of 166. Its period can be increased by passing it near blocks, with the period increasing by 188 for every pair of blocks.
Spaceships
Multiple spaceships of various speeds are known in Bugs.
Infinite growth
Multiple bug guns have been constructed using Boscos, with an example shown below.
Generalization
Bugs can be generalised to other ranges, such as the range10 Bugsmovie, the range7 "soldier bug" rule containing a p552 reflectorless rotating oscillator, and a range6 rule containing a quadratic replicator.
