    protected Button exterminateButton;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // Declare our view variables

Also, remember that letter case is important in Java. The ID you should use is button1 (lowercase)

So far you did it right, you just forgot to cast the button. Also, try to think about how you use spacing as it makes your code harder to read.
