Sticky stuff on Winnipeg windshields bugging you?
Aphid droppings will stick around till it gets cooler
If that sticky stuff on your windshield is bugging you, you're not alone.
It's the droppings from aphids, an insect that feeds on tree leaves.
"They're going to have aphids, and they're going to have droppings and I'm afraid there is virtually no product you can [get] to get rid of them," he said.
"If your plants aren't too sensitive to the pressure of the hose, ... you could probably clean [them] off, but obviously you would be doing it daily," he said.
Allan said Winnipeggers will have to be patient until temperatures get cooler, slowing down the aphids until they stop feeding.
