What’s that white stuff on the prickly pear cactus?

I’ve heard people talk about the white stuff that appears on a prickly pear cactus pad but never knew for sure what it was.  Some said a fungus that would kill the plant.  Others said it could be washed off….but I never heard about it being caused by an insect.  After a few clicks on Google and Bing, I found the answer!  Thought you readers may be interested so am posting it here.  Very interesting.  Click on each page so it gets large enough for you to read.

    video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking
    about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your site when you could be giving us something informative to

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a tough time clearing my mind in
    getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
