    There are several ways of doing this. A quick search on Google should be able to get you some methods of doing it such as putting in an anti-bot question.

    I have stopped the vast majority of bots (used to get around 10 per day) by adding in a few little mods myself. Some of these include removing the website fields etc from my form and making it fail if anything is inserted (method of stopping some remote registrations). A value is inserted into a hidden field and checked upon submission and fails if it isn't a certain value.

    Also, I blocked numerous email addresses like: '*[at]cashette.com', and anything ending with [at]ru. Now I only get on occasions 1 per day, sometimes more, other times none at all for upto a week. At that frequency they are really easy to delete.
