The hibiscus plant is present in almost everyone's homes and the special thing about this plant is that if it is healthy then many flowers come. The special thing about this plant is that you will always get flowers in it, but one of the biggest problems with this plant is that it gets insects very easily.
Aphids i.e. black bugs, ants, mealy bugs i.e. white bugs, small flies, spiders and mosquitoes, etc. live in the vicinity of this plant. The fungus also comes very quickly in this and in such a situation, the hibiscus plant is neither able to flower nor flourish properly.
In such a situation, why don't we take some such measures so that this plant can be free from insects as soon as possible? Let me tell you-
Use neem oil instead of insecticide
Neem oil is very strong and it can easily kill the insects present in the plants. If there are mosquitoes, flies, ants, or white bugs in the plants, then it will prove to be very useful. All you have to do is mix 2-3 teaspoons of neem oil in 2 liters of water and then sprinkle it on the plant with the help of a spray bottle. Take care not to add too much oil or else it can harm the plant.
1 Rupee trick to remove white worms from hibiscus
The white insects present in the hibiscus plant are very difficult to eliminate. They can stop the full growth of the plant. All you have to do is bring a pack of shampoo for 1 Rs. You can use any shampoo, but a medicated lice shampoo would be great.
Dissolve it in half a liter of water and then sprinkle it well on the plant. Keep in mind that you have to do this for at least 3 days so that all the mealy bugs can go away. It doesn't happen all at once.
To save flying insects from hibiscus
If you have got flying insects on your hibiscus plant, then to save your plant, you have to mix one teaspoon of white vinegar and 4-5 drops of dishwashing liquid in 1 litre of water.
After that, you have to spray it on the plant.
Keep in mind that in all three tricks, you have to spray under the leaves of the plant because insects hide in such places. It doesn't need to be completed in one go, you will have to do such treatment two-three times.
