Bee populations are on the decline and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife agency declare a dire emergency.

American and European Honeybees (known as the rusty patch bumblebees) are now listed as endangered species.

General Mills is taking drastic steps to bring attention to the crisis facing the animal kingdom.

Honey Nut Cheerios' mascot Buzz is missing and the General Mills company is hoping that consumers will take concern to the declining population of the honeybee.

They are now offering wildflower seeds in select boxes.

The Cheerios website says: "Buzz is missing because there's something serious going on with the world's bees. Bee populations everywhere have been declining at an alarming rate and that includes honeybees like Buzz."

The rusty patch bumblebee is in dire straits. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared it critically endangered animal.

Fuhrer's Donald J. Trump's massive cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife and Forest Service could spell doom for the bee population. He also delayed the announcement of noting these specific species to take effect until Spring.

Bees are natural pollinators. Bees are responsible for pollinating plants that help grow foods.

If we lose a bee population, then food prices will surge up and cause a food crisis.
