Whos got bug problems?

It's been rainy thanks to a tropical storm that just passed by, but I figured I'd just park my topless jeep underneath my apartment building instead of putting my top back on, knowing it's going to be sunny in 2 days.
The thing is... Everytime you hit the passenger dash now, a whole bunch of knats come out of the bottom. I'm kind of worried they're like nesting in there or something because it's dark and humid. Any ideas?

Has your Jeep been seen in any parking garages of ill repute? I know a mechanic who can discretely get your Jeep a prescription for some special shampoo. PM me, we'll keep it on the QT in case you don't want your SO's car to find out.

I think there's a spider living in mine. Any time I leave it parked for over 3 hours there's a spider web on my roll cage.

1) Get your Jeep out in the sun.

2) Vacuum and clean the entire interior including dash vents to get rid of any food residue that may be present.

3) In a small bowl,*combine about 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar and about 2 teaspoons dishwashing liquid (Dawn if you have it). Stir gently to avoid creating bubbles. Put bowl in gnat-prone area, like the passenger side floor; gnats should be history in 48 hours.
