The website, http://www.zirtek.co.uk/hayfever/helpful_hints suggests:
- Keep your windows closed in the early morning and late afternoon, when the pollen tends to rise
- During the pollen season drive with your car windows shut and fit an effective pollen filter
- Avoid mowing the lawn
- Wear sunglasses to help prevent eye irritation
- Shower and change when you get home as pollen can cling to your clothing and hair
- Dry your washing indoors
- Choose plants that are insect pollinated
- Avoid things that will make your symptoms worse, such as smoke and other forms of air pollution

However, let me point out that some studies have documented bees pollinating plants typically wind-pollinated. Schmidt and Bothma (2005) documented bee pollination in sorghum and refer to other studies that have shown that some bees are known to collect pollen from 21 different grass species (Immelman and Eardley 2000).

So, take it for what you will. There's my little bit of science for you this week. No doubt, many of you did not even read this far. :o)
