We have a very mature blue spruce in our new garden in Sheffield, England. It has started to drop excessive sticky sap all over our drive since very early spring. Now this has attracted large numbers of wasps. Please advise if this sap is normal and if it is seasonal. We really don't want to remove the tree as it is beautiful and very large, however we can not have this many wasps so near our house. Thanks
