Red face Darn the todes!! Nematode control

Recently I dug up a dwarf banana plant and there were some nematode lumps on the roots. The banana plant was in some shade, but it had all the water it needed, and fertilizer. I had also put a nice layer of wood chips on, which were breaking down nicely. I've heard they hate organic matter in the soil. any suggestions? Any products, preferably organic, to treat them? Or advice? Thanks

Ask for pictures of the lumps if you don't know what I am talking about.
