sap bleeding on deck


I asked this question before, but can't find the answers I received. I recently stained my pt deck with SW Deckscapes solid stain. I brushed on two coats. Looks great. Is wearing well, but the sap or resin or whatever it is, is showing up all over. What do I need to do to remove it, and keep it at bay? Thanks.

Sap from a tree in the yard or sap from the wood used for the deck? Is the wood new?

The deck was installed in 07. I stained it 2-3 months ago after pressure washing. The sap is oozing from the deck boards randomly across the surface.

You have likely had some really really hot days in the past couple of weeks that have caused the sap to come out of the wood.

Gently scrape it off.

And I don't think you can stop it from occuring again. But eventually, the sap will stop running.
