Hi Johnted, what you have is scale insect which causes the plant to become sticky and sooty, had the same problem, Bay is prone to scale insect. You can buy a spray from your garden centre, quite difficult to spray underneath, especially if the plant is a large one, I usually spray mine twice a year.
