What Should I Use?????

gardenlady48(z5 IL)July 10, 2007

What do you all use to prevent all those holes in the leaves on your hibiscus??? I sprayed some daconil or sevin insecticide....how often do you need to do this? The critters just keep at it.

Thanks, Pam

I tried some Dawn dish washing liquid...just a few drops in a spray bottle with water and spray on the leaves. It won't hurt the plants and is environmentally friendly;0) It does work on my crittershere in NJ!
