Practical Pests is an artist book available in fine print and digital form focusing on living creatures, both plant and animal, that we has humans consider a nuisance.

There are many creatures that get the short end of the stick when it comes to human appreciation. When pressed to consider why, people aren’t sure. Maybe it’s the long, spindly insect legs or those squirmy leather rat tails. For the most part, these pests are far from cute and cuddly. This doesn’t mean, however, that they aren’t useful. This book has taken a few creatures that humans abhor the most and has searched for their uses. Everything on this planet has a purpose, often and surprisingly related to we humans.
