Try WD-40 it wont hurt the paint; and its a mild solvent so it works pretty good for stuff like that.
There are also citrus based sap and bug removers that work well too. (old detailing tricks)
If you are VERY VERY careful you can use a single edge razor blade to get things like that off but I dont reccomend that if you havent done it on something else first.
Hold it really flat on the surface and only cut into the sap ; it shaves it right off.
hope this helps,Brian
