Default Bug flew in Wort!

Well while brewing tonight a mosquito landed in my boiling wort. I've had plenty of bugs land in the wort during the boil. So I'm not really worried about it but I'm just curious if anyone else has had this issue especially when brewing at night with a light on outside. guess I'll catch it during straining.

A Englishman, a Scotsman, and an Irishman walk into a pub. They each buy a pint of beer.

Just as they were about to enjoy their beverage three flies landed in each of their pints.

The Englishman pushed his beer away from him in disgust.

The Scotsman fished the offending fly out of his beer and continued drinking it as if nothing had happened.

The Irishman too, picked the fly out of his drink, held it out over the beer and then started yelling, "SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT, YOU BASTARD!!"

I thought that was terribly funny.

Not sure I would even notice a mosquito... I tend to be more concerned with leaves and tree branches.

Beersmith 2.0 will account for this, as long as you remember the time of addition.

yes time of addition makes a difference. Like hops, earlier adds more flavor, later more aroma

I brew outside as well, I try to finish up before the driveway lights come on. Moths are too chunky and mess up the mouthfeel.
