Unhappy Happy sap into something grose

Hey everyone,
I had a very happy Phal (loads of aerial roots, great leaves, etc.) that used to produce happy sap a lot. I had not looked at it for a few months as I was away, and now when I did, I was stunned by what I saw. The leaves have become infested with something and it looks gross. In all places that were covered by sap, there is this matter. I am tempted to cut them all off as I've done to one of them so that it doesn't spread to my other phals. Will take pics to show you guys...

Sap can be very attractive to all kinds of pests. If the infestation is out of control you have to consider discarding the affected plants. Good luck!
