Have knotty pine siding on west side of house, gets lots of sun late afternoon, logs are sapping from sun, have tried scraping off in the fall and sealing it, but by the end of next summer same thing again. Is there some product to put on the knots to make them quit sapping?


Nothing that I know of. It will due it for years. They where probably a little green when first stained.

We also have this sap problem - we have too much siding to scrape all the sap - it is still soft and gooey after 7 years - the top of the sap turns white and looks awful in the sun (it is gooey under the white) - what can we do?
