We already have killer bees as well. You would need to come up with something that people haven't already been living with for years and years. Those of us who live in the Deep South are already used to every kind of creepy, crawly, slithery and buggy creature so it would take something complete extraordinary to get most everyone to move into a regular large city- much less a mega city. I'm not so sure that such a thing exists.

An easier way to force people into mega-cities would be to raise the cost of gas and transportation fares, until living in the mega-city was the cheapest option.
That's what everyone basically does - shops around for the largest home in the safest area for the lowest overall cost. Some people go for the old farmhouse in the country to live in during the weekends and drive in to London to live in a bedsit in London for five working days. Other people own an apartment in London and cycle or take a bus to work. The problem with the first lot is that they displace genuine country workers from their own homes, who then have to live in council housing because "rustic cottages are a good investment".
