Hi George,
It depends what you mean by the highest temperature. If you are referring to the temperature at which 50% (Tmax) of the exposed animals die, I think I can find this if I get a chance to look.
In general I would suggest that exposure to temps above 75 F be for brief periods of time, although in my experience they will tolerate (for brief periods) temps to about 82 F.

Ed
