Bees are kinda furry though. I'd fish him out with a steralized spoon or something.

I think he was referring to mammals, even though lots of "bugs" have "fur" on them.

I would take the opportunity to name your beer in honor of the bee that so happily gave his wee life to inoculate your home brew to certain perfection.

...reminds me of a joke. three guys walk into a pub & order a pint. Flies land in all three beers,& the first guy pulls it out,tosses it aside,& keeps drinking. The second guy demands another beer. The third guy,an Irishman,picks the lil fly out buy his wee wings & yells "Spit it out!"...

I believe insects can carry acetobacter which is no bueno but you might be alright only time will tell. I read somewhere on here that a guy found a band-aid he had on his finger from a fresh cut on brew day that somehow ended up in the fermenter and the beer did not get infected.

That's because bandaids are meant to prevent infection.

Fruit flies are the debbil! Evil, dirty, infection carrying little monsters that corrupt fermenters both far and wide.
Avoid at all costs!
