Celebrate Valentine’s Day with NB&T and NWTF

The NWTF Convention and Sport Show kicks off February 14th with an evening social and live music with Country Outdoors in the Waterin’ Hole. Official convention activities commence on Thursday, February 15 through Saturday, February 17th.

National Band & Tag will be 1 of 500+ exhibitors at the convention. If you are at the show in Nashville, make sure to stop by our Booth #1426 to chat with our team about your identification needs. Bird bands, ear tags, wildlife conservation tags, tree tags and more, we are here to help. Pick up a free 2024 convention band at our booth (while supplies last).

NB&T has been partnering with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) for 25+ years. Two of our eleven owners, brothers Brad and Fred Haas, always attend the NWTF convention. We asked them, “What is your favorite part about exhibiting at the NWTF convention?”:

Brad Haas: “There are so many people who tell us stories about our bands whether it’s a hunting story, banding birds or tagging critters. It’s always fun talking to the customers at the show who stop by the booth to say hi and talk about how our products are working for them.”

Fred Haas: “My favorite part of the NWTF convention is talking to all the great folks who attend the show and end up stopping at our booth to inquire about all of our tagging solutions. There are lots of experts from every state at the convention to share their knowledge about conservation and wild turkeys.”

So, stop by our booth, say hi to our team, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the 2024 NWTF Convention and Sport Show this week!

TN & KY Wild Turkey Banding Project

Did you know that the Kentucky Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Resources, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Tennessee Tech University and the NWTF  are currently collaborating to collect information on wild turkeys? For this project they are using NB&T’s aluminum rivet bands Style #1242FR9. The Tennessee-Kentucky collaborative banding project is in the second year of its four-year duration. This project will help us better understand wild turkey harvest and survival information that may be impacting wild turkey populations.

According to the article, “Multi-State Wild Turkey Research One Year Closer,” the banding project seeks to gather data that will lead to a better understanding of the biological (i.e., mating phenology or timing), landscape (i.e., habitat quality) and regulatory factors (i.e., season timing, bag limits) that influence male harvest and survival rates across Tennessee and Kentucky.

To date, 669 turkeys have been banded in Tennessee, and 659 turkeys in Kentucky.

Make sure you are following your state’s bag limits and reporting any bands you find on harvested birds. You can report your bird’s leg band ID number to the correct state’s website listed below and on the band of the turkey.

1005-1P Discontinued

As a family owned and operated manufacturer in the USA, quality is very important to us. In order to ensure we are providing the very best products, we’ve decided to discontinue the 1005-1P.

Due to supply chain and labor changes, the 1005-1P is no longer a viable option and we have far superior alternatives available. Style 1005-1 Stamped tags ($) and Style 1005-1L1 Laser Etched tags ($$) are both great options, depending on your budget and needs. We would be happy to send samples of these alternate styles if you need them.

We appreciate your understanding as we strive to provide top quality solutions to our customers.

Beehive Management Tags

National Band & Tag manufactures asset identification tags for many purposes, but one of the more unique uses is for beehives! Our customer Robert Couchman with BEE KIND Honeybee Rescue goes in and safely removes honeybees from places they shouldn’t be in and re-locates them to his apiaries. He uses our tags on his beehives as part of his apiary management system. Numbered tags allow Robert to track which hives have been tested and treated for parasites, the queen of the hive, and many other important factors for keeping healthy honeybees.

Scout honeybees will go off in search of a new home, and sometimes the home they decide on, is not the most honeybee friendly place. You don’t want to suddenly stumble across a hive of fifteen to twenty thousand honeybees in your house, shed, roof, garage, etc. BEE KIND Honeybee Rescue in Wisconsin helps rescue and relocate honeybees as much as possible. Timing is key, with the best chance for successful relocation being in late March to early September. Early relocation allows the colony to establish a new hive, expand colony population, and store enough honey and pollen to survive a Wisconsin winter.

Tagging Sea Turtles Around the World

We offer a few different styles of flipper tags for sea turtles, such as the #1005-49, #1005-681 Monel, and #681 Inconel. But we now offer an even larger, #691 Incoloy turtle tag. By tagging sea turtles with flipper tags, we can learn more about their migratory patterns, growth rates, survival, and reproductive output. The more information we have on these beautiful creatures, the more we can do to help conserve them for the future.

sea turtle tags

Multiple conservation organizations use our flipper tags for identification.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – “We use National Band and Tag Company’s Style 681 Inconel Tag. We’ve found these to have the greatest retention and lowest corrosion rates of the various flipper tags we’ve tried in the past.”

Seaturtle.org  – “The most commonly used Monel or Inconel flipper tags (Model Number 1005-681) are available from the National Band and Tag Company”

 

Celebrate turtles, and learn more about conserving them on May 23rd, with World Turtle Day! “The purpose of World Turtle Day, May 23, sponsored yearly since 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, is to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive.”

Socially Distant Fundraiser Ideas for Conservation Organizations

Due to COVID-19, we are all staying socially distant. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to cancel your annual banquet and fundraiser. Usually, Bird Band Raffles are held in person. But here are some other ideas to keep the fundraisers going while staying safe:

  • Facebook Live Raffle – Have your chapter president go Live at a designated time. They can show off the auction items, take donations, and name the winner, all in 1 video.
  • Online Auction – If you have a website, set up a page where members can view raffle items, buy the number of bands or shotgun shell tags they want, and then mail it to them. Use social media, or email blasts to announce the winner of the drawing.
  • Waterfowl SlamsSee Utah’s set up here. Bands are mailed out after the hunting season is over based on how much someone participated.

shot gun shell key chain raffle items for fundraisersbird band fundraiser raffle item

NWTF worked with NB&T to make an easy-to-use PDF order form to order shotgun shell tags or bird bands, and raffle tickets. If your organization is interested in creating something like this for your chapters, email us at [email protected]. If you are a smaller organization, who is interested in having a custom logo stamp made, learn more here. Paper Tickets numbered 1-100 are available (Style R2754) to help your drawing go smoothly.

NEW Sea Turtle Tags Made from Incoloy

We are excited to announce our new, bigger, better, sea turtle tags! These new turtle tags, style 691IL are made from Incoloy material and are 3/8″ x 7/16″.

Our customers asked for a tag that would fit on the flippers of larger species of sea turtles. As well as a tag that younger sea turtles could grow into. The new 691IL meets this customer request, and more! The larger tag not only fits on larger species of sea turtles, but it also provides room for additional stamping. You can now fit more lines of text on one side of the tag, and a larger, easier to read, serial number on the other side of the tag. Shown below is a size comparison of the new 691IL tag to our other, smaller, turtle tag (style 681IC). sea turtle tags for large turtles made from Incoloy material. Another difference between our turtle tags besides size is the material. The new 691IL is made of Incoloy, while the 681IC is made of Inconel. These two materials are similar in that they both high-performance alloys that stand up to salt-water environments. Incoloy has less nickel, and more iron, in it than Inconel.

Both of our turtle tags are self-piercing, but the 691IL has a hole, while the 681IC has a bubble. Both these features ensure that when the tag is closed, it won’t get caught on anything, such as a fishing net. The hole makes sure that when the tag is closed, no stamping gets covered up. The hole also makes it impossible for the person placing the tag on the turtle to over-apply the tag.

Ear Tags for Mice, Rats, and Small Animals

Our small animal ear tags (Style 1005-1) can be used for multiple purposes. Research labs, universities, and hospitals, all use these ear tags on mice and rats in their research. Wildlife conservation organizations use these tags on small animals such as rabbits and squirrels to track population and research species. Breeders and competition shows use our tags on animals like rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs to track litters, and for showing animals to meet competition identification requirements.

FAQs:

Can a 1005-1 and the applicators go in an autoclave?
Yes, they can.

Can a 1005-1 go in an MRI? 
No, they are made of metal.

Can you use a 1005-1’s on Chinchillas?
The stamped 1005-1s will work on chinchillas, but the laser etched ones will not because the lasered numbers can’t stand up to the dust bathes.

How do I order 1005-1s?
You can order online, call us at 859-261-2035, or email us at [email protected] to place an order. If you are ordering with a PO, we will need a copy of it. If you want to order our Quick Ship ear tags, you can order those online here.

How do you apply a 1005-1? 
Place the ear tag in the applicator keeping the hole side of the tag flat against the jaw of the applicator with the indentation. Locate the tag within the ear, applying beyond a ring of cartilage. After sealing, be sure to check that the tag point has come through the hole and bent around sealing properly. Wash tags in alcohol or a similar cleaning solution to help prevent infection to the ear.

What are the customization options?
1005-1: Stamped 3 digit consecutive stamped number will fit on one side – 6 digit is available but will extend around the other side of the band. Numbering starts with two preceding 0’s (For example 001-1000).

1005-1L1: Laser etched, up to a 6 digit number or 1 letter with 5 numbers.

1005-1LZ: Laser etched, 7-11 characters.

1005-1L2: Laser etched numbers on 2 sides.

1005-1BC: 2d Bar Code with Human Readable Number on the other side of tag.

What is the difference between stamped, paint-filled and laser etched?
For stamped tags, the numbers are indented into the tag. The stamped tags can be filled with paint for a higher-contrasting look. Laser etched tags are engraved with a laser that creates a darker text and can fit more numbers onto a tag.

What is the turnaround time for 1005-1s? 
2-4 weeks during the off times, 4-6+ weeks during the busy season, like in January and August when universities are back in session. For a quicker turnaround, try our Quick Ship tags, 1,000 tags numbered 1-1000 ships in 2 business days.

What material is a 1005-1 made from?
.018″ Monel. Monel is a group of nickel alloys, primarily made of nickel and copper.

International Owl Awareness Day

Fun Fact: There are over 200 species of owls in the world

Banded owl for International Owl Awareness Day

August 4th is International Owl Awareness Day! NB&T is celebrating with the top 10 oldest banded owls according to the “USGS Bird Banding Laboratory’s Longevity Records of North American Birds“. According to the Bird Banding Lab, the oldest banded owl is a 28-year-old Great Horned Owl, located in Ohio. It was banded on 3/9/1977 and encountered on 3/24/2005. This Great Horned Owl was found with an injury and placed into captivity. On our oldest banded bird list, the 2nd, 5th, 7th, and 9th oldest birds are also Great Horned Owls. Other species on the top 10 list include Barred Owl, Snowy Owl, Northern Spotted Owl, and Great Gray Owl.USGS Owl chart

National Band & Tag Company manufactures metal leg bands that are also used to band owls. Different types of research and conservation organizations will band owls to monitor the population, mating, movement, diet, etc. so that they can better improve their conservation efforts. Many species of owls that are endangered, or threatened, is because of the loss of their natural environment. Owls are important for the environment because they help control rodent populations.

National Wildlife Day

Today, February 22nd is National Wildlife Day! Also celebrated on September 4th, the 22nd was added to honor the memory and birthday of wildlife conservationist, Steve Irwin.

National Wildlife Day was created to bring awareness of endangered animals that need to be preserved and rescued from their diminishing populations. This day is also used to acknowledge zoos and animal sanctuaries for everything they do to help preserve this planet’s animals and educate the public about conservation. National Wildlife Day is celebrated on two dates, to double the effort to help bring awareness of the plight of wild animals around the globe. NWD encourages wildlife lovers to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, visit their local zoo, and donate what they can to make a difference in the lives of endangered animals.

National Band & Tag is excited to celebrate today by recognizing all our conservation, zoo, and sanctuary customers! The research and conservation efforts that our customers make is inspiring, and we are happy to know that they use our products to help make a difference. We have had the opportunity to meet a lot of these great people the past two years at The Wildlife Society Conference, and we are excited to get to work with more conservationists in the future to meet all their identification needs.

National American Eagle Day

June 20th is National American Eagle Day! This day is used to commemorate the anniversary of the Bald Eagle being selected as our National Symbol, to celebrate its physical recovery to America’s skies, and to observe the American values, ideals, and attributes for which it stands.

eagle wearing a leg band

On June 20, 1782, the Bald Eagle was selected as the U.S.A.’s National Emblem, and in 1995, the American Eagle Foundation was able to get President Bill Clinton to recognize the first American Eagle Day.

Bald Eagles almost went extinct in the 1960’s due to loss of habitat, but they were brought off the endangered species list in 2007 due to the work of conservationists and strict protection laws. To better learn about eagles and to conserve them is where National Band & Tag comes in with our aluminum Lock-On Leg Bands and Rivet Leg Bands. These custom stamped and numbered leg bands help researchers and conservationist track eagles and learn more about them.

Aluminum Lock-On Bands have a tab that folds over and can be sealed using pliers while the Rivet Band uses pop rivets and a pop rivet gun to seal the rivet band around the bird’s leg. These unique features make these bands great for eagles and other birds of prey.

Bald Eagle: Size 8A or 9
Golden Eagle: Size 9, 9A or 9C

(These sizes are recommended from the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory and should only be used as a guide. NB&T is not responsible for incorrect sizes being ordered based on these recommendations.)

The Easter Bunny has an Earring?

rabbit ear tag

rabbit ear tagDid you know that we manufacture rabbit ear tags? These ear tags are used on rabbits for different research, breeding, and conservation purposes. NB&T offers a few different types of ear tags for rabbits, two of our most popular styles are a thin metal tag with an aluminum or plastic washer (style #1841), or a self-piercing ear tag (style 893). Other styles include the style 1005-1 for small rabbits, or the 1005-3 and 1005-4 for larger rabbits. Your tag style and material may vary depending on the species and environments the rabbits are in.

rabbit ear tag

An alternative method for tagging rabbits in the ear, or any large-eared animal. is accomplished by first folding the ear in half. Next, locate the piercing point of the tag, half of the tag’s length, down on the folded ear, allowing the other half of the tag length to remain clear. Now pierce through both halves of the ear with a single squeeze of the applicator. This will result in two incisions in the ear. Simply pull the ear back up and the tag will now be located securely in the center of the ear with the number facing out at all times.

National Band & Tag will be closed on Friday, March 30th, for Good Friday. Business will resume on Monday April 2nd.

Metal Self Piercing Tags

National Band & Tag’s self-piercing tags are usually used as ear tags, but they can also go on wings, flippers, fins, and more. The first row of tags below is made from steel, and are typically used as ear tags for livestock. We offer smaller sizes for sheep and goats (style 505), medium sizes for swine and deer (styles 621, 62, 681), and larger sizes for cattle (styles 49 and 56).

The second row of tags is made from Monel, except for the 681IC which is made from Inconel. (Not shown: 1005-681). These tags are used for wildlife conservation and research purposes. Monel is a metal that has excellent corrosion resistance that performs well in rapid flowing freshwater and saltwater, while Inconel is oxidation and corrosion resistant, and will withstand pressure and heat. The smallest size we offer is the style 1005-1 for mice, the largest size we offer is the 1005-56 for large animals such as deer and elk, and we have everything in between. Our special Inconel tag, 681IC is for Sea Turtles and other animals that live in saltwater.

Sizes 681 and up have the option of both Steel or Monel. All self-piercing tags require an applicator to completely close and are tamper-resistant. The pointed end of the tag will pierce the ear when you are closing it, so a hole does not have to be pre-made.

Ear Tags for Research and Wildlife Conservation Purposes

wildlife conservation ID tagsIdentification tags are an important part of researching animals so that they can be identified if recaptured. Most people recognize our self-piercing tags as ear tags for mice, rats, and livestock, but our customers use the Monel 1005 series on a variety of animals that you may not have thought of for different wildlife conservation and research purposes.

Sea Turtle Flipper Tags

sea turtle tag on the flipperIt’s almost turtle tagging season! Has your organization ordered their Sea Turtle Flipper Tags yet? We have 2 sizes of sea turtle tags available to choose from. The style 681IC is made from Inconel, and is 3/16″ x 1-15/16″ while the style 691IL is made from Incoloy, and is 3/8″ x 1-7/16″.

Not sure how to tag your turtles? The following tagging guidelines are provided by www.SeaTurtle.org

Where should the flipper tags be placed?

Hard Shelled Turtles: Most people place the tags on the trailing edge of the front flippers. To minimize the chance of tag loss, you should try to place the tag closer rather than further from the axilla (the armpit). There is a thickened scale on the trailing edge of the front flipper, immediately adjacent to the axilla. Most place the tag either through this thickened scale or adjacent to it. In the case of large turtles, the flipper near this scale may be too thick and hence the tag should be applied in the skin adjacent to the scale, either towards the axilla or away from it. The best location will depend on species, geographic location, and who is doing the tagging.

Some place tags on the trailing edges of the rear flippers. This is done for two reasons: to minimize the chances the tags will cause entanglement in nets and to maximize the retention of the tag. These are important considerations. However, tags on the rear flippers are more difficult to see, particularly in the case of nesting female sea turtles. If you decide to place flipper tags on the rear flippers, you should try to maximize the publicity about your choice of tag placement, to ensure that distant observers will also check the rear flippers.

Leatherback sea turtles: Because the trailing edges of the front flippers of leatherbacks are easily torn or ripped, most people do not place tags on the front flippers. Instead, flipper tags are placed in the skin between the tail and the rear flippers.

No matter the species of turtle, always be sure to leave some room (about 15-30% of the length of the closed tag) between the tag and the trailing edge of the flipper to allow for the continued growth of the flipper.

Here are some pictures of tagged turtles provided by NB&T’s customers. If you would like to submit a picture from your organization, you can send us your pictures here.
