Treating the plants with neem oil should help with controlling the pest problem. It will also help in treating any fungal-related issues that may occur. Here is additional info on neem oil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm

As for the yellowing, this is probably stress related and most likely due to the pests. This article may also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/answers-to-what-causes-hibiscus-leaves-turning-yellow.htm
