My Pussywillow tree is dripping sap from what appears to be aphids. Why and how do I clean it up?

I got spray at the nursery and will be spraying tonight.

    You want to get rid of it because aphids are attracted to sap and will leave a substance called honeydew behind. The honeydew might produce an unattractive surface growth called sooty mold.

    To get rid of the honeydew, spray down your tree with water during periods of honeydew excretion, like when there is a drought.
