Are electric bug zappers effective for killing crane flies?

Recently, it seems that any time my front door is open for any period of time, crane flies start migrating inside. I would like to find a way to keep them out when the door is open. Are crane flies attracted to electric bug zappers?

    Actually the electronic bug zappers attract more insects….so if you decide to use one put it far away from your home.

    It is much easier to eliminate the reason crane flies occur around your house. They occur in moist areas with decaying vegetation. Unless you live in a swamp you should let the soils around your house dry out. You can also spray the area around your door with an insecticide to keep them from gathering there.

    I’m sure they are, but keep it away from your house or you’re going to be attracting more bugs and have them dead near your house.
