Are Pests and Plants Impacting My Allergies?

The short answer to the question of whether certain plants and pests are impacting your allergies is yes. But for the longer answer, you’ll just have to keep reading.

Plants

One of the most common causes of seasonal allergies is pollen, which plants produce. It’s also often referred to as hay fever. Pollen is released from plants in order to fertilize other plants of the same species in order for them to keep populating. Most people who suffer from pollen-relatedpollen-related allergies are being impacted by things as common as grass, trees,, and weeds. Flowering plants such as roses and cherry blossoms also produce pollen that is carried from plant to plant by pollinating insects like bees.

Pests

While pollinating insects is a major cause for the spread of allergens, there are other ways that pets can trigger your allergies. For instance, the droppings that come from roaches and rodents are very triggering for those who already suffer from allergies, and even the common fruit fly can trigger allergies. Additionally, while stink bugs are mostly known for their foul-smelling defense mechanism, they are also responsible for their fair share of allergic reactions.
