Allergy sufferers who have used tractors to take care of their lawns know of the havoc it can bring on their sinuses.
A recent report from USA Today notes that some parts of the country are facing an exceptionally bad time for pollen, especially areas that experienced colder temperatures during the winter. The paper noted that pollen issues are particularly acute in the southeastern part of the country.
"The record-cold temperatures in places such as Georgia and Florida delayed the pollination process for oak trees this year, which means the peak pollen season is likely to last until early next month," USA Today said.
According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, people with allergies should try and get someone else to mow their lawns. If they must do so themselves, the organization encourages people wear a mask while taking care of the grass.
When they do cut their grass, people with allergies should try to keep their lawns short. They may also consider keeping their windows closed to lessen the amount of allergens in their home's air.
