Q.Hibiscus With Small Black Bugs

Anonymous added on January 4, 2011 | Answered

I noticed my Hibiscus plant has some little black bugs on the bulbs, and the plant leaves are yellow. I have two of these plants, the other looks beautiful. I want to take care of this before it ends up harming it beyond repair, and I don’t want to spray it down with something which will harm the plant. Maybe something organic will work.

The bugs may be thrips or scale. Regardless, if you are looking for an effective yet safe organic pesticide, we recommend neem oil. You can learn more about it here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
