Allergens through the Year

Through the year there are different times that different allergens affect each individual. Though Spring and Summer when many people suffer most

  • January – Though there is less pollen in the winter, if the heating is up full can raise the house dust
  • February – Mould from trees
  • March- Tree pollen remain high, grasses, and pollens may start coming out
  • April – Pollen from the flowers and grass, can be high in April
  • May – Tree pollination continues, and grass pollen
  • June – High grass pollen month in many areas. As the days get longer and the temperature gets higher, often spend more time outdoors so more susceptible
  • July – Grass pollen subsiding. Fungus spores and seeds.  Mould can grow on fallen leaves, compost piles, grasses, and grains
  • August – Mould spores, which peak during hot, humid weather
  • September – Pollen grains are lightweight and spread easily, especially on windy days. Wet and windy autumn weather the pollen spreads
  • October – Seasonal rain and wind can raise mould spores and fungi spores
  • November – may be one of the best months for people with outdoor allergies. Indoor allergies to pet dander and indoor moulds raise
  • December – Real Christmas trees can make you wheeze and sneeze. It’s likely not the tree itself that triggers allergies but the microscopic mould spores that can harbour in its branches
