While it won't solve the problem entirely, if you have the room for them a trio or quintet of Botia striata
(zebra loaches) will drive your snail population (assuming that these are pond snails or ramshorns, and not Malaysian Trumpet Snails) down to the point you'll rarely see even one. Of course, if the loaches are removed, the snail population will rebound. On the plus side the loaches are some of the most engaging fish out there.
I've also heard that Banjo Catfish are snail eaters, but I have yet to prove that out.
