Leaves are being eaten on hibiscus. Also, some cottony looking web on some leaves. What is a good all-purpose spray for hibiscus?

It sounds like you have either mealybugs or possibly scales, which are closely related to mealybugs. The insect forms a cottony mass on the lower sides of branches. These are usually controlled with horticultural oil sprays. Neem oil is also effective. Here is more iinformation: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm
