The large tomato plant pests can be seen very easily in comparison to the minuscule creatures. The most common largest pests found in tomato plants are the green caterpillars that look very ugly. These caterpillars are quite clever and because they are of the same colour as the plant, they camouflage very well. The main job of the green caterpillars is eating away the tomato plants. There are simple tomato planting tips that can help the gardeners in dealing with these caterpillars on a regular basis. One thing that the gardeners can do every day finds them and dump them into soapy water. However, they need to do this before watering the tomato plants.
The Ultimate Way Out
One of the best ways of dealing with the pest problems affecting tomato plants is that there might be certain devious reasons that the pests and other issues in growing tomatoes might be showing up at the exact same time each year. Many tomato gardeners get completely tired of handling and taking care of such problems on a regular basis. If the problem occurs towards summer end and you already have a very nice tomato harvest, the only thing that you can do is give up on the plants and pull them from the ground. This way the posts will not damage the surrounding flowers or plants. It might sound weird but this is the only way out for saving the surrounding flowers and plants.
