Idea

The (hypothetical) superpartners of quarks are called squarks; according to the general naming convention for sfermions.

Experimental exclusion bounds of gluino rest masses due to the LHC experiment excludes gluinos/squarks of mass below about 3-4 TeV (Particle Data Group Review 17, figure 113.2 and 113.9):
