Can a clean waterfront help keep snakes and alligators away?

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.

Colton & Brandon made their monthly PWC service visit yesterday. When I arrived the site, they were already working the shoreline and obviously had been for some time as they were close to being finished. They explained very professionally and respectfully the process of their visit and how they would be spraying after the cleanup. I had to leave the site again for an afternoon meeting returning about an hour later, and your men were gone.They left a service report detailing/documenting the services rendered. Excellent job. The shoreline looks fantastic. We couldn't be happier that you have these guys on your team and that we chose PWC for our cleanup. In the competitive service business world, PWC is way out in the lead with front line employee customer service skills.
