Are there any treatments or plate conditions that would discourage or 
inhibit the worms from traveling up the sides of the plates and 
consequently sticking, and then dieing? When monitoring a small 
population of young (30, synchronous) adult worms, as many as 10 will 
explore and expire in this manner, even with plenty of E. coli in the 
center of the plate.
