Default Allergies?!

I currently live in California, (in the valley) and my kids & myself have allergies due to the pollen and other stuff in the air, we get it bad. We are moving to Texas soon & I want to know, do people get allergies in Texas (anywhere in Texas) due to whats in the air?

Allergens are very prevalent in Texas but it's all very regional. I can't speak for any area other than Dallas-Fort Worth, but the bad ones here are ragweed, fungus, and Mountain Cedar. Ragweed and fungus are high in spring and early fall (right now), and the Mountain Cedar peaks in January and February.

Ragweed is the bane of my existence. I'm suffering from it right now! We need to get a nice rain shower.

In Houston trees like oaks, pines, elm, and ash can cause spring allergies. Live oaks personally drive me nuts. We also get a bit of of mesquite that will paint your car yellow if you're near them. And that mountain cedar (ashe juniper) that drives people crazy in Jan/Feb is here too, but not nearly as much as in Austin. Mold can be high anytime of the year here. Ragweed & other weed pollen is going to get high soon for fall allergies.

definitely bad here. it varies depending on where you are. el paso won't let people plant mulberry trees because the allergens are so bad. there, you also get whatever the wind chooses to bring in the desert dust from texas, new mexico, and chihuahua.
other areas have lots of cedar, mold, and pine trees. sorry--but, hey, welcome to Texas!

You will probably suffer with allergies there too, depends on what you are allergic too. But I'm sure there are good doctors there too.
