Punta Gorda, Fl
|Something is eating my hibiscus plant - it is a green bug and some of the leaves have a litle white on them. Not sure what to spray - not sure if its aphids and/or something else. Help needed in Punta Gorda, Florida. Thank you

|Aphids generally congregate on the new growth and especially love feeding on unopened leaf and flower buds. If this is what you're seeing, Insecticidal soap will control them -or you can simply wash them off with a strong stream of water from the hose. Hope this takes care of the critters!
