Pollen and Hay Fever in Hartford, CT

When spring and summer roll into Hartford, Connecticut, the city comes alive with beauty as flowers bloom, trees flourish, and the sun shines brighter. However, for those with pollen allergies, also known as hay fever, this scenic transformation can also signal the beginning of a challenging season.

Pollen allergies are reactions triggered by airborne pollen grains, invisible particles released by plants for reproduction. In Hartford, three main types of pollen can cause these allergic reactions: tree pollen, grass pollen, and weed pollen.

Tree pollen typically appears first in the year, usually from late March to early June. The primary culprits in Hartford are oak, cedar, pine, and birch trees. These trees release microscopic particles into the air, which, when inhaled, can cause symptoms like sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and itchy or watery eyes in those who are allergic.

Next in the seasonal cycle, usually from late May to early July, is grass pollen. The common grasses in Hartford that produce allergy-inducing pollen include Timothy grass, Kentucky bluegrass, and ryegrass. These grasses are ubiquitous across the city, from lawns and parks to sports fields, making grass pollen allergies quite common.

Last to arrive, typically from late August to the first frost, is weed pollen. The main weeds contributing to pollen allergies in Hartford are ragweed, pigweed, and lamb's quarters. Ragweed is particularly notorious, as a single plant can release up to a billion grains of pollen in one season!,Living with pollen allergies in Hartford means adapting to the city's distinct pollen seasons. Understanding the pollen types and their seasonal timing can help individuals with allergies anticipate and navigate the challenges of the changing landscape. Remember, though, while pollen allergies can be uncomfortable, they're also a sign of the city's vibrant, living ecosystem.

What is Wyndly?

Wyndly is the easiest and most convenient way to fix your allergies forever. As an online allergy practice, Wyndly offers at-home allergy testing and treatment. The main goal of Wyndly is to retrain the immune system to stop responding to allergens, providing lasting relief from allergies.

Here's how Wyndly works:

  1. Identify Allergy Triggers: The first step is to identify the allergy triggers. You can purchase an at-home allergy test from Wyndly, or if you have already done an allergy test elsewhere, you can share your existing test results. This allows the doctors at Wyndly to pinpoint which allergies need to be treated.
  2. Get Treated by a Real Doctor: Using medications that are similar to those used in allergy shots, a doctor creates a unique sublingual immunotherapy treatment plan to desensitize your immune system. This is done using FDA-approved sublingual tablets or clinically proven dosing for oral use.
  3. Live Better Without Symptoms: The prescriptions are shipped to your door, and the doctor works with you until you’re better. Wyndly offers regular online check-ins with US-licensed physicians and 24/7 availability for questions or concerns via text, email, or call.

The treatment plans are personalized based on your specific allergy triggers and aim to treat allergies at their source, rather than just relieving symptoms for a short period. Most people report improvement in as little as one month.

Wyndly Summer 2023 Pollen Report Methodology

For each city, Wyndly obtained monthly pollen PPMs (pollen grains per cubic meter) for each form (tree, grass, and weed) from February 2022 - May 2023. Data were obtained from Pollen Sense, LLC Automated Particulate Sensors (APS). These sensors automatically detect particulate matter collected from ambient air, and use a neural network algorithm to identify individual pollen species and calculate daily pollen counts.

Yearly averages are calculated by summing the three allergen averages per month of data for a total monthly PPM, summing all monthly total PPMs, then dividing by 12 (month count). Used for per-city average, state average, and total USA average. Season comparisons are done by summing the months of Spring (March, April, May) for 2023 and 2022. If the absolute of the (2023-2022)/2022 is ≤ 0.05, the years were about the same. Otherwise, the more PPM, the worse the season was.
