Copper Fungicide Dangerous

cmventuraOctober 16, 2010

Hey guys,

does anyone have info on copper fungicide? Is it harmful/dangerous to humans? I don't know why every time I spray (and I wear long sleeve, long pants and shoes and cover my face) I feel like I might be poisoning myself....

any words of wisdom?

I don't know about copper fungicide being poisonous.I always use a respirator when I'm spraying any chemicals..Most fungicides tell on the back label to use a mask when spraying it,and try to spray downwind.I wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt also.I don't want to take any chances of poisoning myself.

Yes it is poisonous if you consume it. It is good advise to cover your hands and arms when using it. I have had it on my hands and I just washed it off and all was fine. I personally would use another fungicide unless you really need to use copper. Copper is poisonous to birds and animals as well.
