Did you try a systemic pesticide? It is watered into the soil and travels up the stems and to the leaves. It kills the pests when they feed. It looks like your plant is indoors so you don't have to worry about pollinators. The systemic pesticide works for about 8 weeks. You also can prune the plant back to remove many of the pests. Hibiscus grows back quickly.
