Once those plants are done pollenating, grass allergies kick in, so when an allergy sufferer will feel it worst depends on what specifically they’re allergic to.
After the initial burst of pollen in mid-April, Bielory expects pollen amounts to level out back to a typical season, saying New Jersey is in for a normal allergy season.
