Actually, there are tools for removing staples. The
simplest is just a piece of steel with a bent up
end, about 1/2" long filed to a rounded point. Works
better than a screw driver, but often only one side
of the staple comes out and you still have to
yank the other side out with pliers. I'd pull down
all the tiles then go back over with the remover in
one hand and a pair of pliers in the other; should
go pretty quickly. BTW, where eye protection, sometimes
they come out like a shot.
