Disinfect pruners with Lysol before using them on other plants in your garden, especially when pruning diseased plants.  Also, do not put any diseased plants into your compost pile. 

Rid your garden of plant pathogens as soon as you notice them.  Since Plant pathogens are sometimes carried inside the bodies of pests such as aphids, leafhoppers, flea beetle, thrips and whiteflies – it is a good idea to take care of these insects as soon as possible as these insects can carry viruses great distances infecting other plants in the area.
