The Q&A Archives: Hibiscus infested with aphids, mites, etc

Question: How do I care for my Hibiscus shrubs that are infested with aphids, mites, etc.

Answer: You can start by regularly hosing the plants off to discourage spider mites. These pests like dry, dusty places and directing a spray of water towards the inner parts of your plants will send them packing. Aphids can be controlled with repeated sprays of insecticidal soap. Start by washing them off with a strong stream of water and then spraying the remaining pests. Good luck with your plants!
