Bermuda grass is used on playing fields, but is not commonly allowed to go to seed in those areas. The Baltimore Sun says that it is a common allergen. http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/bal-fhockey-grass-replon20120314065036-photo.html You might want to contact them to see their sources. It is a common weed. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/bermudagrass The weather service monitors pollen, but we do not know if they differentiate between the types of grass pollen. Allergists might have more information about how common bermuda grass pollen is in this area. vw
