Oxalic Treatment.

I have confused myself by reading too many books.
I get the generall idea that if treating with oxalic acid,it should be done when the bees are in a huddle when its very cold.
We have had rain here at some stage of day for the last 27 ,and no really cold days.
Today is very warm.
How should I proceed?

The 'huddling up' does help as the treatment is more effectively administered over the 'tight' group..but that is not essential. The main thing is that the queen haven't started laying yet as oxalic acid can/will damage the eggs and larvae.
