Spiders and mosquitos!

Does anyone else have bug problems in their Jeeps? I usually leave my rear and front windows off overnight and I always walk into a web. Mosquitos are always flying around my legs also. I have no carpet, so where are they hiding? I'm going to take the pads off my roll bar as I have seen some spiders under there. any other suggestions?

Wave,
Erik

I'd say it's not the jeep, it's where you are parking that's doing it.

umm put the windows on?? otherwise its just habitat for critters. I had some mice move into my old cherokee. they started eating the food left behind by my kids. I set a trap and caught one, but something had eaten half of it by morning?? i set another trap and caught another mouse. made you think twice about fishing around under the seats i'll tell you.

I get spiderwebs, even in my driveway. Not so much skeeters.

I am living at the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and this is my "garage"



There are millions of critters in my Jeep
But there are also geckos and lizards in it that eat them

Under the dash by your feet and under seats, that's where they hide.

I had these annyoing ants on the exterior lol... it was a problem with my apartment complex, they would just crawl to higher ground during heavy rain. They fixed the ant problem and now the jeep is ant free. Thankfully.

Disagree. No trees around. I park either in front of my house or in my driveway

Most likely another mouse. I have a pest control business in Florida and find half eaten rodents in traps all the time in attics.
