Ragweed, Be Gone! 

Ragweed, Be Gone!

One of the cruel ironies of Mother Nature: just as the summer heat and humidity begin to dissipate, ragweed rears its ugly head. This nasty, pervasive pollen strikes in late August and prevails until early October or more correctly the first frost, rendering those sensitive to its grains to a state of misery.

A single ragweed plant may produce as much as a billion grains of pollen per season which are easily distributed by a fair breeze. Ragweed pollen can travel as far as two miles up into the atmosphere and have been tracked as far as 400 miles out to sea!

Those who are reactive to ragweed pollen may experience sneezing, running nose, and itchy eyes. What can you do? Here are some suggestions:

  1. Track pollen, using our website. The Agency posts pollen and mold counts, Monday through Friday. Keep in mind that you are seeing the previous day’s count as the collection period is a 24-hour period from 7 a.m. on the previous day to 7 a.m. to the posting day.
  2. Track your body’s reaction to those levels as each person may respond differently to pollen counts.
  3. If possible, avoid outdoor exposure during mornings, when pollen tends to peak, especially on breezy days.
  4. Despite the cooler temperatures, you might be best keeping the windows closed to minimize pollen from entering your home.
  5. If you have been outside, remove clothing and shower right away to remove pollen grains from your hair and skin.
  6. Consult with your health care professional for the best medicinal options to bring you relief.

Ragweed even looks scary under the microscope!

Perhaps ragweed and its ugly head are a major problem when it comes to allergies, but it is one of the wonderful pioneer plants. When soil and trees are removed from a site such as as a building site for construction, one of the first volunteers to set forth on this raw and tortured land is the ragweed. It steps forth with little coaxing and very little water to re-establish the plant world, help with erosion, and provide food for a number of birds. So as you sneeze your way into fall, remember that the lowly ragweed does have a role.
