Billy is the son of Bill Sr. – also known as Big Bill – and his wife Donnie. He has a younger brother, Ricky Bretherton, who was also featured in the popular reality series. Before Vexcon, Billy served in the US Air Force as a Senior Airman. He wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement, but after discovering that he had an interest in biology and entomology, Billy started learning about pests and vermin during his time at Nellis Air Force Base in North Las Vegas, Nevada. He was particularly interested in the diseases which various pests could infect people with, and hence the importance of keeping such potential pests under control.

Vexcon Animal & Pest Control started in 1996 by Billy’s father, and soon after Bill left the Air Force, he and his brother joined the company. Bill took over the managing hat, and was mainly responsible for the company’s commercial success until 2012, when he had a serious disagreement with the rest of the family members. As a result, he moved to Chicago, Illinois.

However, during his stint as the chairman of the firm, Billy’s net worth had soared along with the company’s success. In 2005, Billy and the Vexcon Animal & Pest Control was featured in the Discovery Channel’s reality show “Dirty Jobs”, and through 2010 he made a couple more appearances in the same show, which only added further to Billy’s wealth. Then in 2009 Vexcon Animal & Pest Control was picked up by the A&E Network for their new show “Billy the Exterminator”, and 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 terminated, mostly due to Billy’s falling out with family. After the family’s falling-out, Billy moved to Illinois, so ending the show, and his stint in Vexcon Animal & Pest Control.

In 2016, Billy became the subject of another reality series, “Billy Goes North”, produced by Corus Entertainment and Proper Television and aired in Canada, and subsequently in the US in early 2017, which has also increased his wealth.

Regarding his personal life, Billy has been married to Mary, with whom he has one child together.
