They cannot be starved out, to do that everything in the tank would also have to starve, they can live on polished water, i change my filter daily & have min the feeding to where i can now see my fishes ribs LOL and still the dreaded vermetids exist & thrive.
As SK8r said ignoring them as part of an ecosystem is solid advice. Only time ive actually found them an issue is IF one happens to be invasive in a corals growth path, and in that case i very carefully dive in & remove that particular snail away. Ok, maybe dive in is pushing it a lil LOL but have to be very careful around mother colonys of hard corals they break with just a hard look so have to do it like its brain surgery sometimes as they can be hard to reach under corals.
