Spring is a reprieve for Chinese city dwellers, particularly in the country’s north, who endure harsh winters.
 

Flowers bloom on trees that looked dead for months. But for residents, flowers bring more than just a splash of color. In April every year, Tianjin is covered by poplar and willow catkins floating in the air. It is estimated that floating catkins will appear in Beijing and Tianjin from April 7 or April 8 this year.
 

The fluffy catkins come from the seeds of female poplar and willow trees as part of their natural reproduction.
 

Catkins are mostly harmless, but for some, they do cause respiratory issues.
 

The floating catkins are often depicted in Chinese literature as part of the beautiful scenery. It has earned the moniker “snow in April”. In real life, the catkins can get old real fast for many residents, who complain of inflamed allergies and the mess the balls of fluff make.
 

The municipal government has lined up several measures to get this April snow under control. Authorities has created a registry of all willow and poplar trees. These trees were grafted, trimmed, and injected with chemicals to inhibit their reproduction.
 

天津又要“下雪”了!具体时间公布!

根据京津冀地区4月整体气候趋势预测,除河北南部外,其他地区杨柳絮始飞期预计为4月上旬至5月上旬,自南向北依次出现。
 

比如北京、天津城区预计在4月7~8日开始,郊区略晚。
 

专家提醒

容易过敏的人一定注意
 

无论是防控病毒,还是防治杨柳飞絮等花粉过敏,现阶段都鼓励外出时佩戴口罩。一次性医用口罩即可起到防护作用;尽量不穿易黏附飞絮材质的外衣。
 

外出后返回应先洗手,同时清洗鼻腔和面部,及时清扫外衣上的飞絮。
 

户外锻炼尽量选择飞絮较少的时段,比如清晨、夜晚或者雨后。
 

杨柳飞絮高发期尽量减少开窗时间,及时清理或喷水湿化室内飞絮,尤其是附着在电暖器等加热电器表面,以及家具和地板表面的飞絮;室内可使用吸尘器及时清理。
 

不要在室外晾晒衣物,防止飞絮黏附在衣物上。
 

日常饮食多以清淡为主,多喝开水,多吃水果、蔬菜等食物,少食辛辣刺激性食物,如羊肉、甜食、酒等。
 

定期打扫汽车内部,及时清理车内的飞絮和灰尘。
 

注意消防安全,严禁乱扔烟头,严禁明火点燃飞絮。
 

春季气候干燥,容易引发上火、烦闷,注意调整情绪,保持心态健康平和。
