Oh those furry pickers.....ouch!  But in AZ and here in MX they are removed, at least at stores we shopped at.  My Bisbee AZ house had a row of pink prickly pears along a patio wall where I hung party lights and those furry pickers got me every time I changed a bulb.  In dry months, the javelinas would come down from the hills and feast on the cacti but the plants always grew back.  Out of a dozen plants, we only lost 1 when temps plunged to 2 degrees F one wicked winter.   They are hardy....and a food source for both 2 and 4 legged creatures 🌵
