Little tiny Red Bugs are killing my Hibiscus...Please Help!

15 years ago

Please help! I moved my tropical Hibiscus in for the winter, but it has become infested with little red bugs that appear to be killing it. The leaves are drying up and turning spotty colors. I've had aphids before, but they didn't kill the plant. These bugs are on the plant and in the soil too.

I've searched past posts and did not see any info for this type of infestation. I can't figure out what they are either... Does anyone have a tried and true method to kill these bugs and save my plant? I have used insect spray on indoor plants before and they always die. This was my grandmother's Hibiscus that she loved and I really want to save it! Please see the photos below.

Your help would be graciously appreciated!
