|Some opuntia species can grow very large like the nopales or prickly pear variety shown here. The Weed Twister is shown lifting and safely placing a large branch of this cactus in a trash container. Gloves and other tools have severe limitations when addressing thorny plants like these cacti.|

|From tree to trash can with one tool - no gloves needed here! Grab sucker branches beyond the ordinary reach of your arms, twist them or pull them towards you, place them or plant them wherever you wish!||
|We love our yuccas, but without proper grooming, the suckers weigh down branches and cause them to break. The Weed Twister makes this pruning job a snap!|
|For many centuries the prickly pear (known to Botanists as
Opuntia or the Indian Fig) and over 300 relatives of its family were
considered precious plants for the inhabitants of pre-Colombian
Mexico. The natives cooked the greens parts of the prickly pear, as
we do vegetables, and ate the fruit of this swiftly developing
cactus every chance they could. The prickly pear was brought
to Spain by Christopher Columbus and from there it spread quickly
throughout the Mediterranean. In areas of Australia, India and
South Africa, the prickly pear is a large threat to the ecological
balance. The governments of these countries spend millions of
dollars a year to control this "thorny" problem. Most species
bear long, wickedly sharp thorns protruding in clusters from evenly
spaced aeroles. Surrounding the thorns are "glochids," fine
hair-like fuzzy spines that cloak the surface of the aerole. These
microscopic glochids are brutally painful and almost impossible to
remove from the skin because of their fish-hook design. Even though a prickly pear may be visibly
spineless, the glochids on paddles and fruits remain just as nasty.
Using gloves is also problematic because the glochids remain in the
glove fibers and leather to attack your skin in subsequent
The aromatic, colorful fruit of the prickly pear is full of small seeds which can be eaten without any problem. The prickly pear is low in calories, is fairly high in proteins and is high in vitamin C. It is usually served with other fruit (banana, cantaloupe, kiwi) or eaten plain with a little lemon juice squeezed on it (and served very cold). Use the Weed Twister to pick prickly pear fruits from the stems by twisting at the base. Spines and glochids of prickly pear fruits and pads can be burnt off by holding over flames with metal thongs.
The Weed Twister can also be used to pluck off yucca tree suckers from branches simply by enclosing the stem base in the coils and twisting or pulling. Branches of yuccas and other succulents as long as 12 inches or longer can be tagged and twisted or yanked off with this tool. This is especially convenient when the suckers are beyond the reach of your arms or other tools. Once the branch is removed from the tree, just place it in your trash container in one operation! You can also replant it, if you wish, by using your Weed Twister to dig a small hole and place the stem in the hole. This one tool does it all!

How to Control Prickly Pear Invasion?
In recent years the spread of the prickly pear has been checked in some areas by using a type of Mexican moth that devours the leaf branches. The plant is resistant to fire and grows quickly in warm climates. Cultivation and hand tools like the Weed Twister offer solutions in appropriate situations.
