Ladybug larvae are actually the more effective predator, so I recommend Gardens Alive's ladybugs, which are ready to reproduce upon arrival. Gardens Alive can be reached online or by calling 812-537-8650. However, your hibiscus may need help before the baby ladies are ready to eat solid food. Neem-Away is a good solution and is usually available in garden centers. (also sold by Gardens Alive). This product supresses the aphids desire to eat and interrupts their life cycle. The active ingredient is an extract from Neem tree seed. Hope this helps.
