Since the start of autumn, our hibiscus flowers have got these gross pests! Please, help us! How to get rid of these awful creatures and most especially to keep them from coming back!!October 21, 2019 at 4:02 pm ReplyJTPrivate messageGreenhorn
These are aphids. Try spraying them with soapy water. Mixture ingredients:
- 5 oz (150g) grated soap 5 oz (150 grams)
- 1 quart (1 liter) water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Dissolve grated soap in the water then add vegetable oil to the mixture.
This worked for my plant so I hope it will also work for you.
Lavender or marigold plants are good aphid repellants. You can put any of these plants next to your hibiscus to prevent aphids attack in the future.October 22, 2019 at 2:41 pm ReplyPeaceful soulPrivate messageGreenhorn
Thank you, JT! I’ll try spraying them with the mixture you recommended. I really hope it’ll work for me, too! I’ve got to save this plant – it has kind of sentimental value to our family.
