    Are the wimps claimed to be bosons or fermions?

    WIMPS is non baryonic matter, Bosons are force carrier particles, such as Higgs, gluons, w and z bosons and photons. Photons is electromagnetic force carrier, w an z boson is weak force, gluons is the strong force. Graviton is the theorized gravity carrier.

    Baryons is a form of fermions, whether or not non-Baryonic dark matter form of wimp is a fermion is not confirmed, weakly interactive neutrinos are fermions having a half integer spin.
