Question How do I seal the gap between my screen porch and siding?

I have a screened porch that was added after the house was built. The owners used 4x4 posts against the siding of the house. There is about a 2 inch gap between these posts and the siding, allowing insects to fly in, thus defeating the purpose of the screen!!
Can anyone suggest a way to seal this gap? Keep in mind that the siding is an uneven overlapping surface. That's actually the part I can't figure out. Otherwise, I would have used some sort of weather stripping.
Thanks!

Get a couple square feet of 2" foam pad (fabric stores carry it) Cut the pieces you need to fill the gap(s) and force it into place.
