Aphids, Cicadas, Leafhoppers, Butterflies, and Moths Produce Sticky Substance

People who have parked their vehicles underneath a tree for some time may be perplexed when they return to their vehicles and discover a sticky coating has been applied to them.

Honeydew is actually dripping off the trees, despite the fact that they may believe it is sap.

The sticky substance is produced by insects such as aphids, cicadas, leafhoppers, butterflies, and moths.

Honeydew is secreted by insects after they have sucked the juices from tree leaves. Aphid infestations can be eradicated with sufficient water pressure.

Honeydew has the ability to adhere to almost any surface that is left under tree canopies. Utilizing high-pressure water, keep lawns and gardens free of honeydew and debris.
