Help IDing this issue.

Post by Passengernumber5 »

It looks like black dirt. There were wasps messing with it last fall. Not sure if that is what happened. Any help on what I should do is appreciated.

You got bugs of some sort (aphids maybe) the black is sooty mold they produce. Insecticidal soap might get rid of them.
