Are you affected by allergy season and spring’s high pollen counts? Well, you aren’t the only one. A USA Today article, “Seasonal allergies emerging,” reported that at least 10 percent of Americans have seasonal allergies to tree, grass, and ragweed pollens. An estimated 60 million people in the U.S. are afflicted with allergy symptoms, such as itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
Controlling weeds can be a key step in controlling your allergies. Pesticides help eliminate the weeds, like ragweed, that can cause your sniffling and sneezing. Keep your lawn weed-free to help reduce your allergies. For more information about pest control and your health, visit the health section of Debug the Myths.
