U can’t eradicate vertimids imo, u can keep them under control tho 

I beg to differ, i had a vertimid out break and after adding 10 bumblebee snails, and after crushing as many as i can find, i have yet to find a new one for a few months!

Honestly i have no idea, i added them but i did not observe them eating vermetid snails, but they might be the reason why i am not seeing new ones popping up.
