Hello and welcome. Do you have the problem in the day or at night?

during the day and up to dusk

In that case a light trap may not be useful to get them elsewhere than on the screen door but sure will diminish the population for the next day. You can build one with a soda bottle where you cut the end to put it back on it like an inverted funnel (easy to get in hard to get out) and stick a light under it (making sure the light don't leak out). You can use a piece of tape as the funnel hinge and a small hole and a toothpick as the lock (to make it convenient to empty).

You may also try to look for cluster of eggs under leafs starting in June and destroy them to keep them under control.

You can install bird houses to increase predation in the area (nesting bird need a very big protein diet for the young).

If you feel adventurous you can grill and pound them like they do in Laos with rice and soy bean :)
