Hi, I wonder if I can tax your brain over the heating situation. My bins have a floor area of 15”x24” and height of 7”. They are stacked in two tiers of 3 giving a total height of 23” with spacers. They are in the garage but are fortunate enough to be closely enclosed on three sides by insulated walls. I have one double tier lot on a shelf and a further double tier lot below (currently only two high). With the onset of autumn I turned on the heating which consists of one red heating lamp above each double tier. This is giving a temperature between 60 and 70 during the below zero temperature at night. Since I understand that these creatures do not like the light I am wondering if this is actually the wrong sort of heating source. If this is likely to have a negative effect perhaps someone could offer me some advice on what to use as an alternative. I did look at these heating pads but would one pad under each tier be sufficient?
