Pollen Bomb! Watching this video might make you sneeze


MILLVILLE, NJ (WCMH) — There’s no question about it anymore. Spring is here, and so is all the pollen.

But if you think it is bad here in Ohio, wait until you see this video posted on Facebook by Jennifer Henderson of New Jersey. We’ll warn you – it might make you sneeze just watching the clip!

Henderson tells WNEP-TV her husband was clearing brush when he noticed a whole bunch of pollen on their trees. So she started recording video while he tapped one of the trees with his backhoe.

What happened next is now being shared on social media as the “pollen bomb” as a huge yellow cloud of pollen quickly floats off the tree.

Sneezing yet?

No surprise, but Henderson says her husband quickly got out of there. We don’t blame him.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, allergic reactions to pollen from trees, grasses and weeds affects more than 6 million children and 20 million adults nationwide.
