There could be a few reasons she is doing this
1. She could be going through a phase
2. she thinks you are her tree and is trying out the sap
3. love bites, some gliders show affection this way
you can try a few things
1. get some very cherry yoplait yogurt (not light) and put some on your finger, apply more as she licks it off.
2. gently blow puffs of air in her face or make psst pfft noises loudly
3 redirect with feathers, bubbles, finger puppets
4. wear leather gloves or socks on your hands(be careful with socks as your gliders nails can snag easily)
