Q.

Should I trim off leaves eaten by bugs

I have a couple of hibiscus plants that the leaves have been eaten (they look like lace now) to where there is really no leaf left. Should I trim off leaves before I spray the plants?

Yes, you can remove the leaves.

Neem Oil is a good treatment.
Here are a couple of links with more information.
