Default heat/basking bulb

Hi all can anyone recommend where to get 100w screw fitting spot bulbs from? I currently have a 75w but it is not getting the area temp above 29ish and I think my new arrivals are a bit cold. I have moved the lamp down but it don't really seem to make much difference. Today I have been to BQ homebase asda & wilko and none of them stock above 60w
Many thanks
Dave

We get ours from toolstation http://www.toolstation.com/shop/p94263
and TLC direct http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Main_Ind...tor/index.html

TLC direct do great bargains if you buy in bulk. We order in store and get them for around 50p per bulb.

Have you a reptile shop nearby? You can get a basking bulb for around 5-6 for now until your online order gets delivered, and its a pain than no shops sell over 60watt reflectors, asdas use to do 100watt pack of 4 for 3 but no longer! It's really annoying x

Yep it sure is annoying I if I had the bayonet fitting they had 100w in stock but no longer do the screw fitting . I have found I have a toolstation right by where I work so will be going to collect a supply tomorrow.
