I donned ALL my gear and inspected the hives again today. I even wore the gloves and smoked them. The smoke seemed to rile them up a little instead of settling them down, but I don't know them very well yet.
I added two empty bars to each hive. There are 14 bars in Raven. I didn't count in Lone Star, but probably the same.
I saw the Raven queen, so that was nice. She is doing a good job!
I filled the moats up again with Soy oil and topped them with cayenne as well. The dogs were interested in the soy but not the cayenne. I didn't see any ants.
