Treatment of wood borers in trees

I am using a Dominion 2L drench at roots of my trees. Is there a point in the season when the dominion will no longer be absorbed by roots? if trees go dormant does that mean they will not take up the treatment?
I have mostly juniper and pinion trees, when do they enter dormancy?

Many trees enter dormancy in winter. You didn't say where you are located so you'll have to figure that out yourself. Deciduous trees will give you a good clue. If their leaves are changing the growing season is over.

Treating trees, ornamentals, plants, etc needs to be done at the proper time for the trees health and whatever the target pest is. Over dosing can cause problems as well.

I'd go to the local county extension agent which is an extension of a local university for advice on when and how often to treat for that particular tree and pest. Extension agents are a good source of objective information. Dominion is a good systemic insecticide for trees.
