Causes of Summer Allergies

It’s hard to believe we barely survived spring allergies this year, and it looks like we are not in the clear just yet! Summer allergies are in full bloom and if you are suffering like the rest of us, you should know what it is that is causing your discomfort! Flowers and trees have already blossomed in the spring, but the pollen in grasses and weeds is what’s making us feel groggy, congested and frustrated. Here is a list of types of grasses and weeds that are in full bloom in the summer;


  • Bermuda
  • Blue
  • Sweet Vernal
  • Red Top
  • Orchard


  • Ragweed
  • Tumbleweed
  • Sagebrush
  • Russian Thistle

Please be sure to contact your doctor on information for what type of over the counter allergy drug will help you with your symptoms!
