Billy Bretherton chases down all sorts of Louisiana vermin for his family’s exterminating business, the militant-sounding Vexcon. In the first few episodes of this fun, dumb lil’ series, Billy (who was featured on Discovery’s Dirty Jobs) rids a petting zoo of a raccoon family and removes a 7-ft.-long beehive from a home. His bee-tackling protective gear includes a skull mask and a black boa wrapped around his neck. Back at the office, his brother’s ex-wife has rejoined the firm, much to his mother’s disgust. Some pests resist eradication.
