I have a sick tree with with carpenter ants already and a particularly difficult treatment problem. It is in a flower bed with ground cover, very close to the house and has a driveway on one side and a sidewalk on another. This condition makes it almost impossible to use the recommended sick tree treatment. Any ideas?

You may have to remove your ground cover to take off any excess soil around the tree and to treat it. Is that what you are referring to?

Yes that is the problem and I can do that -- though I would rather not. But what about the sidewalk and driveway? I can hardly remove them.

You do what you can. Remove what you can and treat the tree. With this heat, you may also need to give add'l water.
