Q. Is there an easy way to pack up a spider mite infested tomato plant in a garbage sack without spreading the mites all over the garden?

A. Trace the Manager of Milberger’s in San Antonio suggests that it works well to pull a large garbage sack over the plant as it stands in the garden and then cut the plant off at the base. One issue for this technique would be to remove the tomato cage without spreading the mites.
