Don't the nematodes just crawl up into your raised beds? Maybe they are not as bad in Central Florida as in South Florida.

My parents lived in Gainesville for a while. I once stopped at someone's roadside stand in front of their house in the country and bought a few tomatoes. I was excited about them because they were homegrown, which in Illinois means they would taste good. As it turned out, they were the worst tomatoes I ever tasted, like a mouthful of pink sand. It had to be that sandy Florida soil.
