    I think so. It is silver, and it's also called insulation tape, or heat tape.

    As Andy said, put it on the outside of the mesh.

    Fair enough , cages and type of heating and temperature regimes has allot to do with things IMO.

    I think there is a design fault if you have to turn to a 150 watt globe to get a suitable basking temperature for a jungle python in Sydney. It is not always a matter of just increasing wattage to increase temperature!I would block any mesh top with a non conductive material. You coulod even use a reflective surface on the under side. Maybe start by checking your thermometer as it doesn't seem rght that the cage is cooler than the ambient temperature with a high watage globe.
