Do you see a lot of russeted fruits with dark spots? PP nymphs produce the 
honeydew that drips on the fruit surface causing the russet..  Washington State 
University has a very nice factsheet.. Here is the link..

Subject: [Apple-Crop] Problem with pear trees

Hello from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco,

I hope somebody on the list can help me find the reason our two-year pear trees 
produce a honey-like sticky substance.

I was told it is pear psyllia, but I do not see any insects on the trees.

Somebody else suspected gummosis.  I am familiar with gummosis on cherry trees, 
but the sap we see on the pear trees is less viscous, and forms only a thin 
layer that drips on leaves.

Thanks for your help,
