Common Area Maintenance

Alligators are becoming more active as they are hungry and looking to mate this time of year. They will be moving from pond to pond, usually in the evenings, so be aware of your surroundings, especially when walking your pet. This type of activity usually lasts until the end of April when they become more settled.
 
Alligators in a pond or lagoon are a sign of a healthy ecosystem and do not represent a problem with the fish. An alligator in Sun City’s lagoons or on a bank of a lagoon is not an aggressive alligator. Alligators usually become aggressive after they are fed by humans. Feeding alligators is illegal and dangerous. You could face up to a $2,500 fine if you are caught feeding an alligator.
 
A fed alligator is a dead alligator. If an alligator sees humans as a food source, it has a reason to approach them and could become aggressive, meaning it will have to be removed from the community and destroyed. Children and pets should not go near the water’s edge of lagoons.
 
If you think you have an aggressive alligator on your property, contact Common Area Maintenance at (843) 705-4061 during business hours or Security at (843) 705-4083 after hours. They will review the situation and determine the best course of action.
