Why don't you just let the alligators and pythons duke it out and let them dispatch each other. You could put some fake graffiti where they hang out, like: "Gators make great boots and shoes.", or put a "My Family" pic of an alligator's family consisting of a hand bag, a pair of boots, a belt, or wallet. In the snake stomping grounds, or slither grounds really, put graffiti saying "You damn snakes in the grass caused this whole mess with Adam and Eve. Good job slither butt!" or "You forked tooth nimrods are lower than a snake's ass in a wagon rut!" Then let the war begin.

The Everglades and surrounding areas have so many unreachable places, so many spots to lay eggs, and an abundance of food, the pythons will require a decade or more of consistent hunting to maybe achieve the goal.
You know, other people bitch a lot when their fandoms get bad press, and it doesn't even involve the thing they like getting shot to death.
Anyway, it's a bad situation and I hope it works. But the everglades is a big, swampy place, and species have a way of hanging on there (see Florida panther). Also keep in mind that burms can lay dozens of eggs and the babies are only about 2' long as hatchlings.
But I think they can make a dent. Better a burm hunt than a rattlesnake roundup.
