THE GREAT CACTUS WAR
by Terry Domico
 

The culmination of more than five years of research, this is the true story of the greatest plant invasion in human history. Imagine a sea of prickly-pear cactus up to thirty feet high that covered a region larger than Italy and was still spreading at the alarming rate of more than one million acres a year. Thousands of people were being driven out of their homes and off the land. Digging, burning, smashing, and poisoning the "green monster" had little real effect.

This was the desperate scene that many rural Australians were faced with during the first part of the 20th century. Then, in the mid-1920s, a self-taught group of scientists discovered a little moth in Argentina whose larvae ate the "pear" into submission.

Rural Australia was thus saved, but today that insect hero may be poised to create a plague of its own.
