Earlier this week, Donnie Bretherton’s mother passed away. Her death came as a shock to everyone, especially to Donnie, who was born with Down syndrome and went on to become one of the most famous actors of the past few decades. Here is a look at Donnie’s life, from his early days to his role as Billy the Exterminator.

Donnie Bretherton

Previously known as Billy the Exterminator, Bretherton has appeared on several TV shows in the past, including Dirty Jobs and The Exterminators. His family’s pest control business, Vexcon, is the largest in the Southern United States. It prefers organic and natural methods of pest control, and also specializes in work with pythons, javelinas, gators, and other creatures.

Billy the Exterminator aired on the A&E network from 2009 to 2012, and was picked up by CMT Canada for a new season. The first season of Billy Goes North premiered in September 2016 and ended in November. In the meantime, the show is being renewed for another five seasons.

In addition to his show, Bretherton is also a dispatcher for Vexcon, a pest control company based in Bossier City, Louisiana. He has worked with pythons and javelinas in Florida, Arizona, and Texas.

Early life

During his early life, Billy the Exterminator has had his fair share of ups and downs. He started his career in the United States Air Force. He was a senior airman at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas. However, he eventually decided to pursue a career in extermination. He began working with his brother Ricky. He later left the family business and moved to Illinois.

Billy the Exterminator is a reality television star. He has appeared in several episodes of Dirty Jobs, a pest control show. He is also the proprietor of his own pest control business, which is primarily located in the Shreveport-Bossier metropolitan area. He is known for his unusual fashion style, which includes a black leather outfit and scary mask.

TV career

During the past few years, Billy the Exterminator has largely remained quiet. However, the television star is back in the limelight and he is getting a little attention. During the latest season, he was featured on CMT Canada.

He also had a short stint on YouTube. The show, titled “Vexcon the Exterminators,” aired for 16 episodes and had fewer than 1,000 subscribers. The series was hosted by his brother Ricky.

A few years after the series’ end, Bretherton was arrested in Louisiana for possession of drugs. He was released from prison, but had to serve community service and a $500 fine.

Billy Bretherton left his family’s pest control business in 2012 and moved to Illinois. He is now an entomologist and runs his own company. He has been in the industry for 15 years. He was trained as a military exterminator and studied biology and entomology. He is married to Mary.

Death from natural causes

Until 2012, Billy the Exterminator had a successful six-season run on A&E. The series followed the Bretherton family and their pest control business. The first season was a success, with over 2 million viewers. The show aired in Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama.

After the first season, Billy left his family’s extermination business in Louisiana. The next year, he relocated to Illinois. Then, he appeared on Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. This show helped him become more famous. It also made the producers of A&E want to do a reality TV show about his business.

A&E then renewed the show for five more seasons. The sixth and final season aired late 2012. It was then announced that the series was ending. The official website said that Billy was working on a new TV project.


During the Great Depression, the aforementioned dude eked out a decent sized paycheck and a life of his own. But, things were not all good and bright, as evidenced by the ghouls and gleeful goblins that were aplenty. To make matters worse, his wife was having an affair and the two of them had the misfortune of being married to a flurry of incompetent spouses. It wasn’t until the twosome eloped that the fairy godparents of a sexy, naughty couple came back to their senses. The ensuing years elapsed were a blur. The following decade witnessed an uptick in the number of the aforementioned dudes, and the likes. It was a bumpy ride for all involved and a bout with the dreaded sexless scrooge had the final say.
