Pollen and Hay Fever in St. Petersburg, FL

When the seasons change in St. Petersburg, Florida, many residents find themselves sneezing, sniffling, and rubbing their eyes more often than usual. This is due to the presence of pollen, a fine powdery substance that plants release into the air to fertilize other plants. While beneficial for plant reproduction, pollen can become an annoyance for those sensitive to it, causing what is commonly known as hay fever, or more technically, pollen allergies.

In St. Petersburg, the types of pollen that typically affect people vary according to the seasons. In the spring, from February to April, tree pollen is the most common culprit. Oak, pine, and cedar trees are common in the area, and their pollen can cause allergic reactions.

As the calendar moves into summer, from May to August, grass pollen becomes more prevalent. Bahia grass, Bermuda grass, and Timothy grass release their pollen into the warm summer air, causing hay fever symptoms to persist in those sensitive to these types of pollen.

When autumn arrives in September, weed pollen begins to dominate, lasting through November. Ragweed is the most common weed in Florida known to cause hay fever, but other weeds, such as sagebrush and pigweed, can also contribute to the mix of pollen in the air.

Throughout the year, pollen levels can be influenced by factors such as temperature, wind, and rainfall. Days that are particularly hot and windy can see higher pollen counts, as these conditions help to spread pollen more effectively.

In St. Petersburg, it's not uncommon for residents to check daily pollen forecasts just like they would the weather, helping them plan their outdoor activities to minimize their exposure during high pollen count days. For those prone to hay fever, understanding the types of pollen and their seasons can be an essential part of managing their symptoms and maintaining their quality of life.

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.
