So they're safe to use how ever they won't provide any of the uv light that we want for basking species?

Sure, they are probably safer than the reptile specific bulbs. Bulbs made for humans have to pass safety standards that ones made for the pet trade don't have to follow. Unless I need a UV bulb I always use bulbs made for humans.

I also use regular household light bulbs for heat. And if I have a ddiurnal animal that needs UVA and UVB, I put a flourescent UVB bulb over the cage. But I still use regular lightbulbs for the heat. It's much cheaper. It's ridiculous, in my opinion, to spend $10 on an incandescent light for heat.
