Expert Response

It is very important that you select the proper pesticide to manage the problem you have.  Copper can be an effective fungicide, but the product you are using must list the pest and crop you are spraying.  Refer to the label.  The label is the law.  You can learn more about pesticide safety at:  http://gardeningsolutions.ifas.ufl.edu/giam/maintenance_and_care/pesticides_beneficial_insects_and_i...  You can also contact the Marion County Extension Office.  They can be reached at:  352-671-8400 and are located at 2232 NE Jacksonville Rd. in Ocala.  They have horticulturists and Master Gardener volunteers ready to help you with your gardening problems.  Good luck with your garden.
