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!
