Two solutions I can think are a bunch of rodent baiters and lots of rodent
bait. Not sure how much would be required for 6 months.
You could also try contacting a local college and see what they have to say.
Since I live close to Rutgers, I would try their ag. extension and see if I
could find a rat/mouse guy. They are very helpful with identifying bugs,
plants, and plant problems. But it does take some time to find out who is
the right person. If that does not work maybe we can rube up some type
of McGuyver (sp?) device that is an infer red sensor with a flame throw.
Just remember to disarm it when you enter the barn. Good luck.
PS. The college should be a big one.
