It may be aphids. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/homemade-aphid-control.htm

It might also be several other bugs, but aphids are the most common. Regardless of the bug, all of the common pests on hibiscus can be treated with neem oil. Here is more information on neem oil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm
