Watch Billy the Exterminator

Billy the Exterminator follows the colorful Billy Bretherton as he goes on house calls for his family's exterminating business in and around the swamps of Louisiana. Billy, who sports a spiky blond hairdo, punk leather clothing and a good ol' boy attitude, evicts all sorts of unwanted and uninvited creatures from clients' homes and property. Billy's dad, who founded the business, and mom, who acts as the dispatcher, regularly appear on the show with Billy and his brother Ricky, also an exterminator in the family business. Recent shows have concentrated on Billy and Ricky traveling to other parts of the U.S. to participate in wildlife rescue or extermination projects in addition to their business calls in Louisiana.

Billy shares with the viewer his considerable knowledge about the beasts and insects he encounters on each call, explaining his planned approach based on the behavior of the creatures. Billy isn't a bad guy, though; except for the insects, Billy captures his prey alive and relocates it to wilder parts of the swamp away from humans. Billy dishes out equal parts entertainment and education on his house calls, as the viewer watches him wrestle an alligator in an unused swimming pool or uncover hundreds of skittering cockroaches in s darkened storage shed. Billy's enthusiasm for his job is contagious and the great variety of creatures he encounters leaves the viewer wondering what Billy could possibly be dealing with next. Billy's frequent battles with large nests of bees and wasps in the face of repeated stings are a highlight of the series in a dreadfully fascinating kind of way.
