shinny sticky leaves

mes111(5b -Purling NY & 7b -Nassau County NY)May 9, 2014

Hi all:

The tops of some of the leafs are covered with a shinny sticky substance and I found some creatures on the bottom of the leaves.

The photos are attached.

Can anyone I.D. and offer suggestions?

Thanx Mike

Scrape and crush with your fingers and finger nails.You'll be surprised at how fast a 1000+ leaves can be treated this way. Any tree under 7 feet tall by 7 feet diameter I do by this method. Now If I have 10 trees this size I get reinforcements.

these are small in 3 gal. Pots.

Won't be hard to squash and scrape.
