Default Help with nats and overwintering

So this is my first year growing bananas. I am in Zone 5/6. My musa Basjoo is in my garage doing fine in a planter, but I am having some trouble with the veinte cohol and rajapuri.

The veinte cohol and rajapuri were acquired just at the end of my growing seasoon, so didn't have much time to establish. They both only have a small portion of a leaf emerging from the pseudostem.
But the real issue I am having is that they both are infested with what looks to be nats. They are living in the soil and flying theoughout the house. I have tried applying neem oil, but that doesn’t seem to be working.

Can I remove the plants from the soil and somehow overwinter them without soil?
