April 2016 - Pollen
- The pollen rebirth was comprised of Cedar, Juniper, grasses, weeds, all of our tree varieties, and all the rainy, warm weather brought back our old standby…mold in Extreme levels…..11,000 parts per million…Whew!
- We are already at a 10.2 out of 12 index level.  This was due to the rain and a rather warm mean temperature of 67.6 degrees for April. 
- The pollen is continuing to cause respiratory issues at high rates here in San Augustine County. When mowing and trimming use eye and respiratory masks to reduce inflammation.
April 2016 - Other
- Mosquitoes’ are out in force due to standing water from all the rain and flooding. Take precautions to protect you, your family, and pets.  I have been using an alternative to using sprays with “DEET”. The brand is SAWYER and it contains no DEET, but rather Picaridin at 20%. It is known to have less side effects than DEET and seems to work well for me.
- The Spring Storm Season will still be with us during the Month of May…do you have your contingency plans in place with your family and friends?
REMEMBER: “We should always be prepared for the worst, but expect the best”.  
  Also, Hurricane season begins June 1st and runs through the month of November.  The 2016 season is anticipated to be a more active year in the Atlantic due to El Nino winding down and La Nina beginning to reform. I will have more on this next month as the hurricane season gets into full swing.
