Infestation of Ficus Tree

Anonymous added on October 31, 2011 | Answered

My indoor ficus tree has developed sticky leaves and spreads the stickiness to the surrounding furniture and floor. I sprayed the tree thoroughly with the garden hose several times in an attempt to remove the stickiness. The stickiness continues to return. The tree is 6' high and I have had for over 10 years. Is there something I can do to stop this problem?
