55DSC 1120 CHARLOTTE POLLEN UPDATE: Dr. Klimas – 11/9/2017With the frost coming in the next week or two, this will be the final pollen count for this year. Like the proverbial broken record, our most recent pollen counts (few in the past few days due to rain) have shown very little pollen and a lot of mold.

Reviewing the year, back in February we had very high levels of cedar tree pollen, and relatively high tree pollen persisted throughout March and April. The grass pollen season wasn’t bad, as many days in May were rainy. Levels of ragweed and the weeds were relatively high late in August and early September. But, in my opinion, the big story of 2017 was mold, mold and more mold. Airborne mold spores, both dry and wet, are year round, but this year’s levels were extremely high starting back in the late spring.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, blessed Christmas, and healthy and prosperous New Year!
