@Tx308 , I don't want to derail the thread discussing invasive flora. Yes, salt cedar are extremely invasive and detrimental to a watershed as well, but I was previously referring to regular Texas cedar (ashe juniper). Both are obnoxious little shrubs. Back on topic, I'm with @bikerector in that I too like to remove staples with whatever folder I have in my pocket. Just seems to work better than the little piranha looking things.
