Prickly Pear was responsible for a massive invasion here in Australia. It literally escaped a garden and went berserk! It took a lot of research and the introduction of a natural pest, (the aptly named cactoblastis cactorium moth whose larva feed on it) to bring the evil stuff under control. It is now a prohibited plant here, classified as a noxious weed. You can be fined for growing it.
