Can a clean waterfront help keep snakes and alligators away?

Like every other living creature on the planet, snakes and alligators seek a steady food supply and safe shelter. So, it only makes sense that to control the presence of snakes and alligators near your waterfront, sources of food and shelter must be controlled first. 

Snakes and alligators love to find shelter in areas with excess weeds, vegetation, and piles of debris. These areas also double as an excellent hiding spot for small rodents, which make them an ideal source of food.

Clean waterfronts provide extra protection by helping us see snakes or alligators before we get too close to them. Clean waterfronts also make waterways much more navigable and provide added protection for beneficial wildlife to flourish. Overgrown waterfronts choke the life out of native wildlife and threaten our fragile ecosystem.

Ideally, a well-kept waterfront provides a safe and healthy environment for everyone and lets us enjoy everything nature has to offer from a safe distance, away from danger. Professional Waterfront Cleanup can give you peace of mind by cleaning up your waterfront to make it safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Professional Waterfront Cleanup did a great job assessing, clearing & maintaining our lakefront and are knowledgeable about state regulations. However after using them for years, they recently, abruptly dropped us as customers. Without contact, returning phone calls or providing notice, they've ended our business relationship, apparently because we asked the local FWC agent about a neighbor's waterfront project where PWC equipment was being used. Our disappointment with their response (or rather lack of one when we've initiated contact) and the way they abruptly ended our monthly service leads us to question their 'professionalism". Our 5 star satisfaction has dropped to this 3 star use-with-caution review.
