Hello, just wanted to say to the people that pack these items. It would make really good sense if you would not put light bulbs in the same box as bags of cat food. the driver doesn't know that there is glass in the box and is not careful about how that box gets handled.
This is a sturdy bulb. I did think it would put out a little more heat than it does, but my house is always operating at cool because i tend to be hot all the time from medical condition. This was a 75 Watt. My house is 63 degrees at night and 66 to 70 during the day in winter. That is colder than most people's homes.
I am using the Basking Light to keep temperature consistentfor Dermisted Beetles in their enclosure. With just enough light to see what is happening they are quite content and do their job .
