How to block bots from shopify?

Hello,

Our website is getting hammered with bot spam. It all originates from East Lansing and Dearborn.Thankfully, the bots aren't signing up or checking out, but their direct visits now comprise 50+% (!!!) of our daily traffic. This volume has destroyed the usefulness of our Shopify dashboard/metrics... thankfully, we can filter it out in Google Analytics.

What we're looking for is a way to block this bot spam. What is Shopify's official, recommended means of blocking bot spam, since we don't have access to server files (such as .htaccess) to do so ourselves?

My visitor is from Kanzas and there is no stop there. Minimal 50 times for one day.

In my opinion, you should contact the shopify administrator, because only administrators can access server files to help you block that boot spam.
