Default Tips on fighting Daemons with Tau???

Hey, I'm relatively new at 40k but already have been massacred numerous times by deep striking daemons ruining my forces, no matter what I try I can't get around it. Is there any way for a Tau force (somewhat small <1500p) to take on a deep-striking close combat army???
Cheers

in short BUBBLEWRAP a technique perfected by the imperial guard basically in the tau equivalent you take kroot and wrap them around your units almost literally in a circle so when your opponent deepstrikes you take your turn of shooting like normal but instead of them assaulting straight into your troops next turn you charge into them with the kroot.

Heres a link to an example of heavy deepstrike defence

and heres a link to a series of deployment tactic articles on the same site
