Have you tried contacting your local extion office, our extention agent 
here is an entomologist who primarily deals with ag. pests.  They should be 
able to direct you to the correct person, if nothing more.

Have you considered laying down a line of Cayenne pepper?  That works very 
well here, as does Louisiana Hot Sauce.  They haven't crossed the line yet 
and I've noticed rabbits, cats, etc. are not very fond of the spice
