In Colorado here we found if we lowered the temperature to
under 0 degrees F for a week over the entire farm and
surrounding few hundred miles it really lowers the amount of
bugs - especially grasshoppers - that year. It works so well
we schedule it in January.

I'm not sure if the the USDA will allow you to do it in
Mississippi so maybe someone has some other ideas cause I'm
drawing a blank beyond the cold?? :>
