What problems are you having with them? If you want them out just pull them out as you see them.

yes, what problems? not all bristleworms are bad or harmful. the key is i.d. not even all fireworms are bad. but you usually don't see anything other than one species in aquariums. they are generally natural cleanup crews

I concur with the above. Not all species are harmful to a system but too many of any species can almost always be harmful.

I had a problem with bristleworms in a nano tank a few years back. A combination of traps and reduced feeding solved it pretty quick.

If you don't have fish yet are they just eating detritus from the LR? I would recommend starting with a simple trap or two and then posting pics of the captives for ID purposes.
