Build insect net "house"??
I am in central Texas, with essentially two short growing seasons for tomatoes. Last year I tried Earthboxes and finally got decent fruit set, then leaf-footed bugs arrived and destroyed my tomatoes almost before I knew what was happening. I've read a lot, which has me very discouraged about using organic OR non-organic methods to prevent/control these nasty bugs.
I am thinking about trying to build a kind of insect net house that is freestanding and can be placed over my tomatoes (growing in Smart Pots). I need opinions and advice, please, about how to do this, and if you think it will work. I also probably need to do one for my squash.
I've attached a photo of something from Gardeners Supply, which is where I got the idea.
