Swarming is how Honeybee colonies replicate by dividing a large parent colony into two daughter colonies.
That depends. Honeybee swarms are not particularly defensive or aggressive. Although, they could be dangerous to someone with a strong allergy if they happen to stumble into the swarm or step on a bee. Dogs are notorious for eating flying bees as a game, which can lead to stings.
Honeybees usually swarm during the nectar flow season of spring and early summer. In North Carolina this is from March to July. Though less likely, a swarm can occur at any time.
