You might try a DIY stand to prop the bulb up a bit, so, like Emc said, it doesn’t get TOO hot. With that being said, it’s not a completely unreasonable idea (though I’m sure someone will say it is) to turn it off when you’re sleeping as long as you don’t sleep for like 12 hours haha. Since these guys are so active at night, they’re naturally going to have warmer body temperatures from the activity, and if your house is still warm, he should be perfectly fine. Then, in the morning, you can just flip it on and it’ll be good to go in 2-5 minutes. Just an idea 🙂
