Hi texas lady.

Mites, Aphids or white fly. Go to your local nursery & get Brand name Green Light Neem oil & follow the directions. Repete every 5 to 7 days for 2 months.

Make sure to spray the soil surface.

it could be scale insects. they are round to oval, usually white and sort of fluffy. they are about the size of a BB. they can be controlled pretty easy before they attatch to the plant and put on their shell. any common insecticide labeled for hibiscus should work. wait till a warm day and take it outside and drench the whole plant. be sure to get the under sides of the leaves also.
