What do crane flies eat?


Crane flies eat grasses and the roots of some plants after maturing into adults. However, their larvae feed on lifeless leaves, fungi, plant roots and decomposing plants found in the soil, water or mud. Crane flies spend their time in mud before they hatch during the spring season.
