My home was built in 2000. I now have a red sticky substance dripping in the basement from the ceiling in several places. It is a dark red/black and very sticky. My husband thinks it is sap coming out of the joist is this possible. If so how do I stop it. and also how do I clean up the mess. Thank you.

Sounds like resin bleed. There is really no way to stop it. The cooler the basement the less it will happen. It can go on for years. Typically caused from sealing logs or lumber before it is completely dried.
