How to read pollen count
Pollen and mold levels are determined by the National Allergy Bureau and have been translated into these four levels based on the counts for the majority of days and the averages over the years.
A low pollen count means that only people who are extremely sensitive to pollen and mold will have allergy symptoms.
A moderate pollen count means more people will have allergy symptoms.
A high pollen count means that most people with a sensitivity to pollen and/or molds can experience allergy symptoms.
A very high pollen count means that almost everyone who has an allergy to molds and pollen will experience symptoms.

Why do we count the pollen?
People with allergy symptoms should keep an eye on pollen levels, even when they are low, so they can start taking the right medicines and precautions (like staying inside, taking a bath before bed, etc.) as soon as possible.
The pollen count measures how much pollen is in the air, but it doesn’t have anything to do with a person’s symptoms or how bad they might be. A “low” pollen count doesn’t always mean that there aren’t many symptoms, and a “high” pollen count doesn’t always mean that there are a lot of health problems. When there are a lot of pollen grains in the air, people should usually take more care.

Pollen Count FAQs
What month is pollen the highest?
This varies by location, but typically the beginning of Spring will see the highest pollen count.
Which states have the highest and lowest pollen counts?
States with a short growing season where plants and trees do not flourish will have lower pollen counts. People used to move to these states, for example Arizona, to avoid the plants that aggravated allergies and asthma. Unfortunately, they took the plants with them and recreated the environments they were trying to avoid.
