What the heck is this and why are they hanging out on my hibiscus? Do I need to burn it with fire?
Yep Lol mealies!
They eating em. Or sucking them dry more accurately.
Roses and hibiscus are prone to them. It may take many treatments to be rid of them πŸ€”
Burn it with fire then burn your house and run for your life!
If systemic treatment doesn’t work…
Ok, so I added the stuff to the soil and watered it in, blasted the shit out of the poor plant with the hose, then doused it in neem oil. I didn’t see anymore bugs, but I’ll repeat this as often as necessary. Right now I’m just glad this baby is outside and away from other plants.
