Something on My Hibiscus Leaves


Anonymous added on January 16, 2017 | Answered

I have black, flattish, non legged somethings on my Hibiscus leaves inside. They have a white stringy thing that they (some) seem attached with. Any ideas? We live in CT. What might they be and whats the treatment to get rid of them?

They could be Scale, Mealybug or Mites.

Treat the plant with Neem Oil, ensuring you spray both the tops and undersides of all leaves.
Neem Oil is a safe, organic treatment.
