Hi everyyone

I just bought 2 hibiscus plants from Home Depot, on one I found some kind of bug nest, how do i get rid of the bugs? I need a natural solution as the plants are for my tortoise and water dragon to eat, also i replanted them in organic soil does anyone know how long it will take for the chemicals to get out of them so my babies can have their snack?

Thanks much
