Have you tried Mod Security Commercial Rules (Web Application Firewall) or CloudFlare Web Application Firewall?

Mod Security and CloudFlare are both part of OWASP (www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_ModSecurity_Core_Rule_Set_Project) which provide the same set of rules.

Mod Security is free, but the commercial rules I think are a one time fee of $500, while with CloudFlare (www.cloudflare.com/waf) you have to pay $200 every month.

This is probably the best and most affordable way for blocking bots and bad traffic.

Another solution is to get a hardware firewall in front of your server to filter out the bad traffic, but that may be more expensive.
