if the Ts Fangs are black it is ready. My rule is Black fang confirmed plus a couple days. If you feed too soon they can break a fang, more so if you use hard shelled feeders.
I never use any tricks, a tarantula could be responding to the water as being defensive, curious, etc.... it doesn't really count for much. Fang color does, and remember, as a rule, if you are unsure, WAIT.
Ts in captivity don't die of starvation and as a whole eat more often than the do in the wild. You can wait 2 weeks easy post molt on an adult T and it won't have issues

Feed when fangs are black. I hope your T doesn't die due to fang loss
