      No, I don’t think so. It’s not a very nice place for life to be – too much sun, very cold nights and no liquid water or atmosphere. Mars, or one of the moons of Jupiter or Saturn are more likely!

      There is a small chance that some of the bugs that were on the early moon missions might be alive still – they’d be dormant if they were but it’s possible! So in that case, yes, but they’re be bugs from Earth!!
