Quebec Issues Allergy Season Warning

I don't know about you, but right now my office is filled with poor, sniffling individuals, and they're not the only ones. 

Springtime is here which means allergy season is in full swing to bring you a classic cocktail of itchy noses, watery eyes and lots and lots of sneezing.

Spring is by far the worst season when it comes to allergies. Tree pollen comes in as early as March and peaks in April, then the grass pollen invades the air, followed by mould spore and ragweed. 

Unfortunately since we were "blessed" with an early and warm spring, this allergy season might be worse than ever. Plus pollen counts usually go up after  heavy rainfalls, so considering the weather we've seen in the last few weeks, we're in for one bad season.

As if that wasn't bad enough, according to The Weather Network, reactions to things like ragweed and pollen are getting worse, they're affecting more people, and the allergy season seems to be lasting longer too. 

Here are the top 10 allergens you should be watching out for. 

  • Pets 
  • Dust mites
  • Mould 
  • Trees
  • Grass
  • Ragweed 
  • Weeds 
  • Mildew 
  • Insect bites 
  • Air pollution
