Happy Christmas, Back in January 3 2018

Hello BrisbanePollen followers,

We hope you find the BrisbanePollen count information and forecast useful.  We are taking a break for Christmas and will return January 3, 2018

During this time the pollen trap is set to collect for 7 days at a time so we will continue to record patterns of pollen exposure in Brisbane.

Take care if you are outside over the holiday season. Grass pollen levels in the air in Brisbane are likely to remain moderate to extreme over the next two weeks.

Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year from the BrisbanePollen Team.

Brisbane grass pollen season kicks in with vengence

Hello BrisbanePollen followers,

We started reporting the daily grass pollen counts for this season and providing a grass pollen forecast on December 1, 2017.  In subtropical Brisbane, grasses flower for long periods of the year and peak sometime throughout summer.

This year the grass pollen season is starting to peak rapidly. Since December 5 there have been four extreme grass pollen days with counts over 100 grains of grass pollen per cubic metre of air.

People with hayfever and allergic asthma triggered by grass pollen should take care to avoid being outside on high pollen days this week and to take preventative medications.

For information about pollen allergy see the ASCIA patient and carer information sheet and how to manage symptoms read about options for treating hayfever.

If you are new to BrisbanePollen, please assist our research on how the pollen information is useful by filling this short questionnaire.

Take care, the BrisbanePollen team.

Brisbane pre-season 2017

Hello Brisbane,

The grass pollen season hasn't started for Brisbane yet but sheok, gum and cyprus have been in the air. There has also been Alternaria mould spores during last week linked with  heavy rain.

We will start to forecast and distribute the grass pollen and total pollen counts in late November.

If you would like to help us with our research please complete a short pre-season survey before the grass pollen season forecasts start. http://survey.qut.edu.au/f/190401/43d7/
