We had two beautiful outdoor hibiscus this summer on our back patio. As winter approached we brought them inside but now there are tons of tiny bugs all over the leaves. Weeks ago we took them outside, hosed them off, then applied a hibiscus-safe insecticide. I reapplied a week later. Just noticed the problem is far worse now. Should i have kept this plant in total darkness instead of by a window? Would the plant go dormant and the bugs unable to survive? I am afraid to hose them off now as temps here in n. Ohio are in the twenties.
