In order to avoid this problem in my own situation I've been toying with the idea of using wood ash and salt in the cob mix. The lye in ash should deter insects and rodents. Crushed glass powder is available from those who "recycle" glass. It costs about $10 per ton. An addition of this to sub surface layers of plaster should deter some soft bodied creatures.
