Tenacity Herbicide can be used on a lawn that 2,4 d or other herbicides have been applied to safely as long as you follow label instructions and apply it evenly. Tenacity will only last about 30 days as a pre emergent compared to other pre emergents on the market that will last 3-4 months. Tenacity is mostly used as a pre emergent in the spring or fall when customers are over seeding their lawns with a cool season grass to fill in bare spots, as its one of the only products that can be used at this time without harming the seed. If you are not seeding, you may want to consider a longer lasting pre emergent or one that covers a wider range of weeds than the Tenacity does, like the Dimension 2EW or Pendulum 2G for instance. If using Tenacity as a pre for crabgrass, you want to put it down at or just prior to your soil temperatures reaching 55 degrees in order to be effective. If soil temps have already progressed past 55 degrees your pre emergent will not do much to stop the weeds.
When applying Tenacity Herbicide
Tenacity Herbicide is one of the few products that can be applied at seeding, prior to seeding, or just after seeding of new grasses to help prevent and control weeds at the same time. Be sure to check the label for any restrictions to certain turf types as Fine Fescue is more sensitive than other species when using Tenacity at seeding. Be sure to use a Non Ionic Surfactant with the Tenacity when applying for best results.
There may not be any options for reviving the turf that was damaged by Tenacity Herbicide. You can apply a lot of water to the treated areas but you may need to reseed or resod the injured areas eventually that died out from the application (this can take weeks depending on the date of application).
We recommend that you let the Tenacity Herbicide
Battleship III is only for controlling broadleaf weeds and will not effect crabgrass or other grassy weeds at all.
