Powdery Mildew trouble

tombug(5b N Central Ohio)September 4, 2013

Powdery mildew is working over my Butternut squash. The older leaves are completely gone. The middle aged leaves have PM. The newer leaves look perfect and have new blossoms next to them.

The vines have been sprayed multiple times with Daconil, including tonight.

My Question: Is there any danger to the fruit? Is it safe to leave the fruit on the vine? The fruit look the correct color. The vines look in good shape & are still green. The stems to each fruit are also nice and green.

Any help would be appreciated.

No danger to fruits. All is required is to harvest a certain number of days after spraying. READ THE LABEL !
