Idaho Code §22-2108 provides that the state board of examiners may issue deficiency warrants of up to $500,000 against the General Fund, on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, to suppress agricultural pests on state and private lands. The actual calendar year 2000 costs were $87,100 for grasshopper and Mormon cricket monitoring and treatment, $12,200 for gypsy moth survey, and $64,600 for exotic pest survey (apple maggot, cereal leaf beetle, Japanese beetle, etc) totaling $163,900.
