Bots crawling our Member Responsive Portal - HELP!

We have had an explosion of exceptions from our Member Responsive Portal. After much pestering of our tech company and several visits with Arena Support we finally got an exception that helped define that the exceptions are being caused by bots crawling our site. Like ants at a picnic they keep bringing their friends. Here is an example of one. Our tech company said I have to create a "bot blocker" and put it on our domain. HELP! Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks :)
