A Prickly Pear Site

A prickly pear site before treatment with Cactoblastis cactorum. Commonwealth Prickly Pear Board scientists introduced the larvae from the Argentinean moth Cactoblastis cactorum in 1926 and within ten years, the once-dense fields of common prickly pear lay rotting or had vanished completely.

See image number AR1344 for the treated site.
