I have a lime bush in my house in a planter. This winter it has started oozing sticky stuff on the leaves. The plant looks healthy and I do have a few fruits and some new flowers but I know something is wrong. I have sprayed with an insectiside, which is Volck Oil spray. It does not seem to be killing whatever is taking over my plant. On the counter all around the pot is sticky, so it is obviously dripping from the plant. HELP. . . My mom has told me to clean the leaves with soap and water.

Try treating the plant with neem oil instead. This article will give more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
