Q.What is the milky white ooze on my grapevines?

Zone SC | DonDenInc added on August 25, 2012 | Answered

Our grapevines are pretty old, and this is the first year we noticed what I thought was bird poop on the vines. I rinse it away and it comes back almost instantly. Is this from a bug and is it still safe to eat the grapes?
