Willow dripping sticky sap ?
It's hard to say exactly, but aphids do produce a sticky sap called honeydew. I would try to capture some of the insects and take them to your extension service or garden center for identification.I'm betting you have aphids, but can't be sure. Aphids, by the way, are easy to eradicate with an insecticidal soap you can buy at most garden centers.
