What is grass allergy?

Grass allergy is also known as hay fever. In the Kansas City area, grass begins to pollinate in spring (between April and May.) It’s around this time that our lawns become greener and our noses and eyes become redder.

The positive to grass allergy? Typically grass does not have the same high pollen counts as other trees and plants.

The negative? Grass pollination season lasts over the course of several months – even through the end of July.
