It's a fact
Honeydew is a sticky sugary liquid which is excreted by sucking insects such as scales and aphids. It is mostly excess plant/tree sap that was ingested by the insects which they then excrete along with extra sugars and other wastes. Honeydew is sometimes so abundant that it makes things like grass, cars and lawn furniture sticky.
