prickly pear cactuses rotting

October 30, 2012 12:06PM
Hoping someone in Topanga can advise me. I have dozens of huge prickly pear cactuses on my property and I've been fairly successfully fighting off the dreaded cochineal bug through the years, mostly by spraying the white fuzz off with high powered blasts of water from the hose. Occasionally, I've applied neem oil too when water didn't do the trick. I'm still battling cochineal, but now my cactuses appear to be dying from rot. My fear is that it's from all the water they've received each time I spray the cochineal bug. Now many of the leaves are brown, squishy and rotting and are falling off in huge chunks. Is there any way to treat this rot? Thanks...
