One of the most common allergens in southwest Florida is pollen. Exposure to weed, tree, and grass causes pollen allergy symptoms for tens of millions of Americans every year. The great Florida weather also means that no matter what time of the year it is, there is always plant life in bloom. Blooming plants create pollen, a fine yellow powder spread by wind, birds, and insects.
