I've been brewing outside and I've noticed the number of insects increasing as the weather improves. I occasionally brew at night and the last time I noticed a number of moths flying around the lights. I'm not all that concerned during the boil, but I'm afraid something might fly into the kettle while I am chilling my wort. Does anyone cover their pot with a mosquito net or something similar while chilling?

I've never read anything about this, so maybe I am over thinking it a little bit.

A piece of aluminum window screening works well.

While chilling my wort I use my lid. Course I do it in the sink. With ice water. In the house....D'oh!
