Seeding after applying weed b gon?

I'm scheduled to aerate and seed a customers lawn tomorrow evening, he emailed me tonight to tell me he sprayed the lawn with weed b gon. Is it imperative to wait 14 days to seed? Planting tall fescues.

In my experiments from 2011. I found you had to wait about 48 hours, but more like 4 days if you used an ester.
I used perennial rye.
The label is usually conservative; they don't want to get blamed if seed fails to come up.

Label. Probably say wait 7 days or so. That's what speedzone label says. You may be ok doing it a little early. Might get him to bag the clippings when he cuts next.

If this Weed B Gone application by your customer was an unplanned thing I would fire the guy (not do the job).

That's a little harsh I believe. I'm a part time operation I value my customers and this has always been a good one.

I will work with him as much as possible but I can't get of schedule since I'm renting the aerator.

I understand that sentiment, generally. I just would not want to be responsible for the seeding where his action may influence the outcome. I'd be a little concerned about what his next idea might be too. That said, it's about relationships and you are in the best position to make the call on this one.

The weather is still hot here, I may possibly push of aerating and seeding until next week when the temps are supposed to come down some.
