Malathion works wonders w/bugs; liq fertilizer TIP
I had tons of flying pests, including Aphyds, etc, and the Malathion treatment (2 tablespoons/gal water) spray got rid of 95 % of the pests overnight. The 2nd treatment got the remainer. A miracle! One plant was literally falling apart and not blooming at all; my plants bloom profusely now!!!!!
TIP: the best liquid fertilizer for all your plants, bushes and trees, including tomatoes. Take a 5-gallon bucket and fill it half full w/manure (horse or cow); then, fill it full with water. Let it sit a few hours; then dip (I use a hand-held mug) off ~ 1-2 mugs full per day for tomatos, ~ 1-2 mugs/day for hibiscus. It is a miracle fertilizer. And, CHEAP ...... too!
NOTE: REFILL to top with water after the liquid is removed down to the manure level.
once or twice per week: (U can't burn anything with this no matter how much U use)
2-3 mugs for bushes, including fig trees too
3-4 mugs for trees
