I'm guessing that because it is a pest, it tastes bad. That's just how it works. Except for deer. Deer are pests and they taste good.
And cows. I hate the way they crawl around inside the walls and chew on the insulation, but they taste good too.

Just looked on WolfGang Puck's site. They taste almost exactly like blue crabs.
