Can CuPRO 5000 DF Fungicide be used for Ball Moss on my trees?
Yes, CuPRO 5000 DF is a good option to treat for Ball Moss. You need to apply in the early spring when trees are dormant. Apply 9 to 12 pounds of CuPRO 5000 per 100 gallons of water or .5 oz per gallon of water, using 1.5 gallons of spray per foot of tree height. Be sure to thoroughly wet ball moss tufts.
You can also add a non-ionic surfactant, like Kinetic, to help improve control. A second application may be required after 12 months.
This product is also good for Spanish Moss and lichens.
