Should I use Tenacity before or after aerating and overseeding?

I'm starting to think about using my tenacity in September however I want to aerate and overseed my yard either before or after. What are your recommendations as to a timeline before after


If you are using Tenacity Herbicide as a pre-emergent herbicide, then you should aerate first and then apply Tenacity at the same time as seeding or just before. Do not wait until the new grass has started to come up before using Tenacity. If using Tenacity as a post-emergent, then you can apply anytime before seeding, but keep in mind that it may take a couple weeks to kill the target plants, so you would want to wait for those plants to die before aerating and reseeding.
