    How Does Copper Sulfate in F-30 Algae Control Work?

    Copper sulfate is an inorganic compound that combines sulfur with copper. It can kill bacteria, algae, roots, plants, snails, and fungi. The toxicity of copper sulfate depends on the copper content. Copper is an essential mineral. It can be found in the environment, foods, and water. Copper sulfate has been registered for use in pesticide products in the United States since 1956. Copper in copper sulfate binds to proteins in fungi and algae. This damages the cells causing them to die.

    Can F-30 Algae Control Affect Birds, Fish, or Other Wildlife?

    The U.S. EPA considers the copper sulfate in F-30 Algae Control to be practically nontoxic to bees and moderately toxic to birds. Studies with several aquatic species have found copper to be highly to very highly toxic to fish and aquatic life. Trout, koi and juvenile fish of several species are known to be particularly sensitive to copper.

    Fish kills have been reported after copper sulfate applications for algae control in ponds and lakes. Oxygen depletion and increased debris have been cited as the cause of most fish deaths. This is sometimes due to the sudden death and decay of algae and plants after an application. Even small concentrations of copper can be harmful to fish and water organisms. Always follow label instructions to protect the environment.

    F-30 Algae Control is NOT For Use in Koi Ponds or Fish Ponds

    F-30 Algae Control is for large bodies of water such as retention ponds, reservoirs or other decorative lakes and ponds. It can be used in diluted form in pondless waterfalls and other non-fish pond applications.
