Entomomania is about to strike Mercer County. For those unfamiliar with the word, it describes "lovers of insects" and more than 400 amateur entomologists are expected to take part in the 11th annual Insect Festival, sponsored by the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County, from 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Mercer Educational Gardens, 431A Federal City Road, Hopewell Township. "This is our big educational event of the year and it’s completely free because we really want kids and adults to learn how to coexist with insects and realize just because it’s buzzing, it doesn’t make it bad," says Heidi Mass, who is serving as co-chair of the event with Nancy Putnam. "It’s always a lot of fun for everyone."
