Hibiscus moscheutos - JB food?

marcindy(z5b, Indianapolis, IN)July 11, 2007

Does anybody know if JB are attracted to and shred hardy hibiscus (H. moscheutos) like they do the Hibiscus syriacus varieties?

TIA

Marc

Yes. The JB's have destroyed my rose bushes, hardy hibiscus and I found one who had moved on to my dahlias. I've given up on pesticides and plan to start milky spore this summer.
