Pollen and Hay Fever in Yonkers, NY

In the picturesque city of Yonkers, New York, the changing seasons bring an array of colorful blooms and lush greenery. However, for some residents, this natural beauty comes with a downside: pollen allergies, often referred to as hay fever.

Pollen is a fine powder produced by plants for fertilization. During the spring and summer, many plants in Yonkers release copious amounts of pollen into the air. The three main types of pollen that cause allergies in Yonkers are tree pollen, grass pollen, and weed pollen.

Tree pollen is most prevalent in the spring. Trees such as oaks, pines, and maples are common in Yonkers and are known for producing large amounts of pollen. As the delicate buds burst into life, the air fills with tree pollen, which can be a nuisance for allergy sufferers.

As spring turns into summer, grass pollen takes center stage. The wide expanses of lush grasslands in and around Yonkers produce pollen that can make hay fever symptoms flare up. Species such as Bermuda grass, Kentucky bluegrass, and Timothy grass are especially prolific in spreading pollen.

Towards the end of summer and into early fall, weed pollen becomes the main culprit. Weeds like ragweed, sagebrush, and pigweed thrive in the climate of Yonkers and release pollen that can be particularly irksome for those with sensitivities.

The changing seasons in Yonkers, New York, paint the landscape with vibrant hues and textures, but they also bring waves of pollen. Being aware of the types of pollen and their respective seasons can help residents anticipate and understand the challenges that come with pollen allergies.

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.
