Hermits have been known to go after snails in order to make their shells available. But it is usualy only because other shells aren't available. One way to help alleviate the situation, is to go to a LFS and see about buying a selection of empty shells. Get a variety of sizes and just drop them into the tank. The hermits will come across them in their wandering and check them out. If the size is right they'll move in and leave your snails alone.
