Gone Fishin’ – Fish Tags

For many people who are avid fishermen or just like to fish recreationally, the summer is their favorite season; the fish are abundant and biting while the weather is nice and warm. As it gets hotter, the lake starts to sound pretty good or waking up in the cool mornings to go cast when the fish are biting.

How does National Band and Tag fit into this picture?

fish tagWe make fish bands and tags to help track the fish populations, especially when it comes to recreational fishing. The fish populations in different lakes/ bodies of water are crucial to that ecosystem. Banding the fish with fish tags helps to make sure the fish populations stay in the desired range to help maintain balance in the different ecosystems. Notify park rangers/ people in charge of the area you fish in when you catch a fish with a tag or band to help track fish populations!

 

 

Emerald Ash Borer

emerald ash borerThis emerald, metallic- looking beetle has become a nightmare for Ash Trees all over the United States. The beetle originated in Eastern Russia, Northern China, Japan, and Korea. By accident, it arrived in the United States stowed away on cargo imported from Asia. The Emerald Ash Borer causes ash trees to lose 30-50% of their canopy after 2 years of infestation, and death within 3-4 years.

So how can you save your ash tree from this pest? First, you have to save your tree by getting it treated. Ash trees get treated through injections into the trunk close to the ground. After your tree has been treated effectively, then National Band & Tag comes in.

tree tagWe sell tree tags that can be used as identification for the trees that have been treated. These tags come in a variety of shapes and sizes but are nailed into the tree, usually at eye level to ensure they can be seen and are stable. If you have an Ash tree that you think might be infected, please get it tested and treated to help stop the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer!
