Some pest has been laying eggs on you plums. The wounds they made are 'bleeding.'
Here in North America, I might suspect Plum curculio beetles (there would be a small cut at the base of each bit of ooze) or another weevil called the plum gouger. The eggs are laid under the skin of the fruit, and the larvae burrow in to feed on the stone. (I don't know if either of these pests has been exported.)
Oriental fruit moth is another possible culprit.

Which is particularly toxic to bees.
Bees are a consideration at any time and should be everyone's consideration.

This from the manufacturer of Imdane W-70 site http://www.gowanco.com/ProductInfo~pid~28~Imidan%2070-W.aspx ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Phosmet % By Wt. N-(Mercaptomethyl) phthalimide, S-(O,O-dimethyl phosphorodithioate....................................................... .....................................................70.0% OTHER INGREDIENTS:............................................................. ......................................................................... .....................................................30.0% TOTAL 100.0% KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN WARNING-AVISO Si usted no entiende la etiqueta, busque a alguien para que se la explique a usted en detalle. (If you do not understand the label, find someone to explain it to you in detail.) FIRST AID ORGANOPHOSPHATE If inhaled Move person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or an ambulance, then give artificial respiration, preferably by mouth-to-mouth, if possible. Call a poison control center or doctor for further treatment advice. If on skin or clothing Take off contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice. If in eyes Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice. If swallowed Call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to do so by the poison control center or doctor Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. HOT LINE NUMBER Have the product container or label with you when calling a poison control center or doctor, or going for treatment. You may also contact 1-888-478- 0798 for emergency medical treatment information. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN This product is an organophosphate insecticide. If symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition are present, atropine sulfate by injection is antidotal. 2-PAM is also antidotal and may be administered, but only in conjunction with atropine. PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND DOMESTIC ANIMALS WARNING-AVISO May be fatal if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Do not breathe dust or spray mist. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) Some materials that are chemical-resistant to this product are Barrier Laminate and Viton. If you want more options, follow the instructions for category H on an EPA chemical-resistance category selection chart. Mixers, loaders, all other applicators and other handlers must wear: Long-sleeved shirt and long pants Socks and shoes Chemical-resistant gloves for mixers and loaders, applicators using hand held equipment Chemical resistant apron for mixers and loaders Chemical-Resistant headgear for overhead exposure.
USER SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS Users should: ? Wash hands before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet. ? Remove clothing/PPE immediately if pesticide gets inside. Then wash thoroughly and put on clean clothing. ? Users should remove PPE immediately after handling this product. Wash the outside of gloves before removing. As soon as possible, wash thoroughly and change into clean clothing. ENGINEERING CONTROLS Water-soluble packets when used correctly qualify as a closed mixing/loading system under the Worker Protection Standard for Agricultural Pesticides [40CFR 170.240(d)(4)]. Mixers and loaders using water-soluble packets must wear: ? Personal Protective Equipment identified above is required for mixers/loaders ? Be provided and must have immediately available for use in an emergency, such as a broken package, spill, or equipment breakdown: 1. Coveralls 2. Chemical-resistant footwear 3. A respirator with an organic-vapor removing cartridge with a prefilter approved for pesticides (MSHA/NIOSH approval number prefix TC-23C), or a canister approved for pesticides (MSMH/NIOSH approval number prefix TC-14G), or a NIOSH-approved respirator with an organic vapor (OV) cartridge or canister with any N, R or P or He prefilter. Pilots must use an enclosed cockpit in a manner than meets the requirements listed in the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) for agricultural pesticides [40CFR 170.240(d)(6)]. Airblast, flaggers, and motorized groundboom applicators must in be in fully enclosed cabs or, if not in fully enclosed cabs, applicators must wear double-layer clothing, chemical-resistant headgear, respirator, and chemical-resistant footwear and socks. Applicators using airblast equipment and flaggers supporting aerial applications must wear: ? Personal Protective Equipment identified above is required for airblast applicators and flaggers. ? Be provided and must have immediately available for use in an emergency when they must exit the cab in the treated area: 1. Coveralls 2. Chemical-resistant gloves 3. Chemical-resistant footwear 4. Chemical-resistant headgear if overhead exposure Take off any PPE that was worn in the treated area before reentering the cab; and store all such PPE in a chemical-resistant container, such as a plastic bag, to prevent contamination of the inside of the cab. ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS This chemical can contaminate surface water through aerial and ground spray applications. Under some conditions, it may also have a high potential for runoff into surface water after application. These include poorly draining or wet soils with readily visible slopes toward adjacent surface waters, frequently flooded areas, areas overlaying extremely shallow ground water, areas with in-field canals or ditches that drain to surface water, areas not separated from adjacent surface waters with vegetated filter strips, and areas overlaying tile drainage systems that drain to surface water. Limit spray drift. This pesticide is toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high-water mark. Drift and runoff may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwater or rinsate. This product is highly toxic to bees exposed directly to treatment of residues on crops. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds if bees are visiting the treatment area. Protective information may be obtained from your cooperative Agricultural Extension Service. USE PRECAUTIONS Read all precautions and directions before using. Apply this product only as specified on this label. Imidan 70-W is compatible with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides, but is incompatible with alkaline materials such as spray lime, lime sulfur, and Bordeaux mixtures. These materials will reduce the insecticidal activity of Imidan 70-W. Insecticidal activity may also be reduced when the spray solution has a pH of 6 or higher. The pH of the spray solution must be corrected by the addition of a suitable buffering or acidifying agent for optimum insecticidal activity. Of interest to neighbors. **SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT** Avoiding spray drift is the responsibility of the applicator. The interaction of many equipment and weather-related factors determine the potential for spray drift. The applicator is responsible for considering all these factors when making decisions. For ground boom applications: Apply with nozzle height no more than 2 feet above the ground or crop canopy, and when the wind speed is 10 mph or less at the application site as measured by an anemometer. Use a coarse or coarser spray (ASAE definition 572) for standard nozzles, or a volume median diameter (VMD) of 385 microns or greater for spinning atomizer nozzles. For overhead chemigation: Apply only when wind speed is 10 mph or less. For airblast applications: Do not direct spray above trees and vines, and turn off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and when spraying the outer 2 rows. Apply only when the wind speed is10 mph or less at the application site.

If, if, if, if Sherwin wouldn't opine on the solution to a problem, before he knows what it is (even then, it seems that the only answer he has is to spay).
Are you sure the problem isn't Bacterial canker (Pseudomonas syringae pv. morsprunorum and P. syringae pv. syringe) ? http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profiles0701/bacterial_canker.asp
Failing that, is there no botanist at a secondary school or university, agricultural advisor, or nuseryman, to whom you could show your problem, or perhaps ring up on the phone?
Could you post a picture of the problem?
And so that we understand each other, the "silicon like substance" is exuding from the fruit or the tree?
