BILLY THE EXTERMINATOR
Billy and crew are back for more creepy, crawly on-the-job adventures, in the third season of A&E’s hit real-life series “Billy The Exterminator.” Twenty new half-hour episodes following Billy Bretherton and his family-run pest control business begin airing Tuesday, September 28 at 10 and 10:30pm ET/PT on A&E.
In season three the snakes are deadly, the gators are angry, the bees are swarming, and the critters are on the loose — but Billy is ready for battle. Whether he’s out-foxing a fox or trapping a giant wild boar, Billy comes to the rescue with humor, compassion, and a whole lot of attitude. Not even a duck blind filled with the triple threat of gators, spiders and venomous snakes is too much of a challenge for Billy and his brother Ricky. And this season, it’s even more of a family affair when Donnie, dressed in high heels and Sunday best, heads out into the field with Big Bill at her side to wrangle a snake in a friend’s garage.
In Vexcon’s funny, family hit show “Billy the Exterminator” on the A&E Network, we join Billy Bretherton and his family members as they are called to take care of Louisiana's worst pest problems. And it's a big business in the swamp-like state of Louisiana. Although there are numerous other pest control companies in the state, Vexcon is the only team that handles all types of animal removal. From tiny ants to giant snakes, Billy and his team have seen everything.
Billy Bretherton runs Vexcon with the help of his brother Rick, who he describes as "just as crazy as me," his amusing father Bill Sr., his sassy Mom Donnie, who runs the offices, and his beloved wife Mary. A former US Air Force Sergeant, and a 15-year pest management industry veteran, Billy has taken a militaristic approach to pest control - and is emerging a victor.
