Career Beginnings

Vexcon Animal & Pest Control was launched in 1996 by Billy’s father, Bill Sr. and Billy soon became one of the employees of the firm, with his brother Ricky also becoming a part of the improving company for animal and pest control.

Rise to Prominence

The series “Billy the Exterminator” premiered on the 4th February 2009 on the A&E network and lasted until 2012. Alongside Billy, the show featured his brother Ricky, father Bill Sr. and his mother, Donnie. The show lasted for 75 episodes and six seasons, after which it was canceled, mostly due to Billy’s falling out with family. After the disagreement, Billy moved to Illinois, officially ending the show and his stint in Vexcon Animal & Pest Control.

As the show progressed and the Bretherton family became more popular, numerous internal problems began to appear. Billy was angry at the entire family, for reasons which he has declined to reveal, but which ultimately resulted in his move to Chicago.
