Pear Tree problems

Hi, is there anything I should be doing to stop this little pest affecting my fruit? lots of little white bubbles which when you hold up to the sunlight there are dark things inside.

     Is it Cuckoo Spit?  

    White foam with little green froghoppers inside.  Nothing to do with cuckoos or frogs as is explaned in the link. 

    It ought not to do any damage to a healthy tree - encourage bluetits and longtailed tits to your garden and they'll get rid of them for you.
