I’ll play for kicks and giggles. I don’t expect to win anything.

  1. A force that will influence and counteract the flow of electricity is resistance.
  1. Basement waterproofing systems typically use sump pumps.

  2. Three major groups of powder post type beetles damage and reinfest seasoned wood in a structure. False

  3. Cold climates more likely to have rain than warmer ones because cold air cannot hold as much water vapor as warmer air and will reach saturation sooner.

  4. Cockroaches can survive decapitation but will eventually die of starvation.

True

4) Why are cold climates more likely to have rain than warmer ones?
Warm climates are often more humid than cold ones
Cold air holds less water vapor than warm air. This is why warm climates are often more humid than cold ones: Water vapor remains in the air instead of condensing into rain.
Cold climates are more likely to have rain, because water vapor condenses more easily there.

What am I?
Cockroach
