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.

Montipora Digitas, Cyphastrea, Blastos, different Leptoseris, Green Stylo, GSP, gorgonions, Ricordea mushrooms, psammocoras, Birdsnest coral, Clownfish, Watchman goby, Royal gamma.
