Billy The Exterminator Net Worth
How much is Billy Bretherton, aka Billy The Exterminators net worth? After 13 years as a Reality Pest Control Rock Star dressing Host, Billy The Exterminator’s net worth exceeds $1 million. Bretherton was first discovered in 2004 when the Discovery Channel was interested in a new Reality TV Show based on a real pest control service. After interviewing over 200 pest control companies around the United States, the producers found reality star/ rock star gold in the Bretherton Family’s Vexcon Animal and Pest Control in Shreveport, Louisiana.
After the casting crew working for Pilgrim Films had followed Billy The Exterminator around for a single day, they knew Vexcon Animal and Pest Control Crew would become a huge hit for Reality TV. Especially with Billy, his brother Ricky. Mom Donnie and Dad Big Bill’s Rock Star status in the pest control industry. Billy’s first big break on TV was an episode of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe where he did an excellent job performing in front of the camera. What does Billy The Exterminator go hunting for with Mike Rowe on their first job during the show? Rats, gigantic rats in someone’s attic.
Is Billy The Exterminator Fake or Real?
As with most (O.K. all) Reality Shows, some parts of Billy The Exterminator is fake or staged for the show. But considering Vexcon Animal and Pest Control covers a variety of animals including opossums, armadillos, bats, skunks, snakes, alligators, rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, ants, bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, crickets, earwigs, millipedes, centipedes, American roaches, smokey brown roaches, German roaches, scorpions, silverfish, spiders, spiders and termites, there’s usually plenty of real action for the show.
Ricky also started a YouTube channel in 2015 after their series on A&E Channel ended and had to see if those videos were fake or real. Considering the business could show real-life footage of exciting pest control calls instead of staged scenes for TV, I was surprised the very first video watched was indeed fake. Ricky gets a call about a possum locked inside of a house. The lady taking care of the home while the owners are away somehow trapped the possum in a room and in a live trap that just appeared before the Vexcon crew arrive. Another episode was Ricky going under a house to catch a skunk with his bare hands. Really? As you might’ve guessed, he gets sprayed by the skunk before his helper decides to set a live trap instead. Bretherton hasn’t posted on the channel in over a year.
