They get pretty hot. I've heard some can get to like 120F. I haven't had any experience with so you'll want to check it with a temp gun 24hrs after turnin it on to see what the temp is. For a burm, you'll want it around 90F so if it's too hot, you'll want to get a thermostat to control the temp.

It really depends on the size of the burm compared to the heat mat whether it'll heat it entirely or not.
