Today I placed a gallon jug of water under two legs of my hive and put the other two inside a cement mixing tray. I filled everything with water to try and create a moat to stop the ants. Later today I looked and one of the gallon jugs was just touching the back leg and the **** things had made their way to the hive again, leaving a perfect trail.

Who can tell me what to do? I may have to exterminate this fresh cut-out because the first banana boat from Sout America doomed the colony.
