1970s(ish) Disaster Movie Trivia question: Killer bees?

Wasn't there a killer bee disaster movie where we find out in the end that the mass of killer bees crossing the country (and globe?) were controlled by an advanced alien race which used the bees as a weapon of mass destruction. That was some kind of twist ending that came out of the utter blue sky (no hints at all it was going in that direction and that it was up until the reveal ... a typical 1970s disaster movie)?

I can't find any synopsis details and presently not sure that it's the 1978 Oscar nominated The Swarm.

@tsarstepan,
I remember an episode of Sliders with concrete eating killer bees, but that's it.

@boomerang,
With a synopsis like this:
Quote:


When South America killer bees, corporately smuggled into the United States, mutates into intelligent insects and attacks helpless people, young scientist work desperately to end the threat as the menace swarms in on the city areas.

It may actually be The Bees (1978).
