Can I use Termidor SC to treat Florida carpenter ants that have infested some of my trees?

I have ants in most of my trees and the trees are dying, so I need something I can spray on my trees and that won't bother my dogs

Answer:

For prevention and/or control of existing or future infestations of termites or carpenter ants in decking  and fencing materials, landscape timbers and similar nonstructural wood-to-soil contacts, trees, and utility poles, apply 0.06% Termidor SC finished dilution (or foam) by the following methods.

If possible, locate and treat the interior infested cavity by injection. Nonstructural wood-to-soil contacts may be treated as a spot application or continuous treated zone.

Apply Termidor SC to the soil as a drench or by rodding around the base of the points of soil contact. Rod holes must be placed 3-inches away from soil contact points and spaced no more than 12-inches apart along the perimeter of soil contact points.
