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.

RE: Copper Fungicide Dangerous

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.
