Can you apply Oxalix Acid + Glycerol strips in the hive in the first week of February?

Hello,

We are expecting 5 warm days with day temperatures 55+ F (12+ C) and night temps 35+ F (2+ C).

Planning on opening the hive on Feb 5th to add a pound of 3% protein pattie and I was thinking about early treatment with the Aluen Cap formulation (10 gr OA + 10 ml Glycerol mixture on cardboard strips)

The warm spell won't last, the night temperatures will probably drop to 20F (-6 C) a week after that, so I am worried that the glycerol being always wet might cause problems during the cold nights.

Anyone got any advice for me? Treat now or wait a month or two?
