The Q&A Archives: Chemical to kill Cactus?

Question: I have a pasture(3 acres) full of cactus. While I love my potted cacti, I abhor the ones in the pasture.

If I mow them down, they come back in multiples.

Short of going around and pulling each one out of the ground, is there a chemical I can use on them?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide,
Lenette Shaw
