White bugs eating tomato plant roots

We plant a vegetable garden every year, and the last several years. our tomato plants will get so high, and then they start wilting and dying.

Eventually, every tomato plant in the garden will dye. when we opened up the tomato plants root system this year, little white bugs was eating the inside of the main root stem.

The root system was also hollow.

Can you help!!!

I am tired of putting out money for tomatoes every year, and all of them dying. Nothing else in my garden is affected.
