Using htaccess banning IP numbers

Grand Master

I use htaccess entries to protect and manage my sites. Lately I've noticed a bunch of badly behaving IP numbers in my log. They seem to be automated scripts or bots trolling my site, I don't know why but it makes me uncomfortable. It certainly is not normal visitor behavior. I would like for someone familiar with IP number ranges and blocks give me some tips, or help me to "crunch" this list to make it shorter, instead of blocking one-by-one.  How can I do this better?


Thank you.
