    Depends on what they are really however..... Scatter / broadcast some "5% SEVIN Dust" . It will Safely take care of most any critter.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I looked online and identified the infestation as Aphids. I totally sprayed my bushes with a mixture of lemon dish soap, listerine and water. The Listerine should act as a fungicide which I have used on other issues and worked exceptionally to save a pear tree. Have been taking care of these bushes for the past 37 years and never had this issue before. I thought Rose of Sharon bushes were the hardiest things ever. Thanks again.

    Good Luck! It killed mine-given to me by a now deceased lovely friend. I miss her and it.
