Answer: Hi Reyleen,

The beetles are active during flowering periods and can produce many generations each year.

The beetles don’t enjoy the brighter coloured flowers, preferring the pale colours or white flowers. If found, remove the flowers from the tree and dispose of them. Give the hibiscus a regular feed with Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Pelletised Plant Food to assist with future flower production and reduce the overall stress on the plant.
