Indianapolis Pollen Counts for Monday June 27th, 2016

Low grade weed exposure over the weekend; Saturday 7 (low), Sunday 6 (low), and today 7 (low) grains of weed pollen per cubic meter of air sampled. No ragweed seen, however we had the usual nettle and plantain (more of the later than the former).

Grass pollen was at the moderate level the past three days; Saturday 6, Sunday 25, and today 7 grains of grass pollen per cubic meter of air sampled.

I treat my grass pollen allergy with a topical nasal steroid. I will add an antihistamine if I am going to be outside doing yard work etc. I just ran out of the spray. The grass season has been dwindling and should be over shortly. I will have most of my new canister left for next year.

Indianapolis Pollen Counts for June 23rd, 2016

Grass was the predominant pollen today. The count was 14 grains of grass pollen per cubic meter of air sampled for the day.

The oddest finding were 6 grains of ragweed pollen. I saw two grains on the pollen rods on Sunday. The ragweed count would be low today at 2. This is way too early to see this highly allergenic player. I checked my references a few times. Ragweed pollen is unmistakable- it looks like a spiked ball- Sputnik.

This would be quite a finding to see this allergen in our area so early in the season.

Indianapolis Pollen Counts June 12, 2016

I have continued to collect the pollen and run the counts. I have been rather busy over the past few weeks. Hopefully with a few talks finished, I can be more regular with this.

Tree pollen counts for the month of June have been sporadic. Nothing all month until June 8th- 12th- very low counts for black will tree pollen.

The weed plantain made an appearance in May, but has dwindled in concentration so far in June. We had a high count of 14 on June 2nd, and minimal numbers of weed counts for half of the days so far in June.

Grass is the major pollen this time of year. On June 3rd we had a very high count of 239 and another high of 224 on June 6th. We did not see grass pollen counts this high in any of the last 3 years of doing these counts.

For Grass pollen we have the following scale;

Low 1-4

Moderate 5-19

High 20-199

Very High >200
