How to Keep Alligators Away



If you need alligator help, click my Nationwide List of Alligator Removal Experts for a pro near you.

Fencing
You can keep alligators away with fences. That's about it. If you don't want to install a fence on the land, some people have been installing underwater fences a few feet out from the lake edge. just make sure this fence rises up to the height of the water or above.

Trapping and Removal
If there's one in your lake or pond or property that you don't want, you can contact your local state wildlife agency, and if the animal is deemed a threat, they might send a licensed alligator trapper to remove the reptile. Alligator trapping is not easy.

Stay Back!
Other than that, you don't keep alligators away, you keep away from alligators. Stay away from the water's edge. This is particularly true during alligator mating season, in the month of May, when the gators are at their most aggressive. The same goes for your kids and pets of course!
