The mold Alternaria is well known for causing fungus. Alternaria spores dwell from spring and go right through the late fall in most of the areas and are known to spread at huge levels of thousands of spores per cubic meter air, approximately. If you are suffering from an allergy that affects you in various seasons, then it's possible you are allergic to spores or other such fungus. Molds thrive everywhere. Disrupting a mold causes the spores to be airborne.
Mold and mildew, both are fungi hence, there reproductive process is different from animals and plants. Their reproductive process involves the 'seeds' or spores traveling by air. Some spores are known to travel in dry and windy conditions also. While, others tend to travel in foggy or dew temperature, where the humidity level is high. Inhalation of these spores causes the allergic reaction that people suffer. These fungus spores allergic symptoms generally are observed during July to early fall. But, some fungi grow in indoor and outdoor areas, in all weathers hence, these allergies can occur year round.
