Default Stop Tomato Curly Top Virus

Central South Carolina this worked for me.Stopped curly top 100%.Was hit very bad in 2016, lost 1/2 of crop.When first saw this year had read some place about leaf hoppers not prone to fly down into dark area.Had nothing to loose but more plants.
Have 5 ft. concrete wire cages with app. 30" diameter.Got some of lightest frost cover cloth and cut cover for top of each cage, down 1 square of wire and attached with clothes pins.Caution, this will make your garden look very strange and neighbors will ask what you are doing.
But it worked 100%.If you have any trouble with curly top try it on a few of your plants.

How long will you keep the covers on the cages? Do you have leaf hoppers all season? Thanks for this info.
