    I haven't tried using this myself as I don't own any sites that allow user registrations, but another solution to this problem is to use a registration honeypot. These work by creating an additional field on your registration form meant for bots to fill out that invalidates the sign up form (human users will be warned not to fill it out).

    Unfortunately, the only plugin I know of that works for registration forms is Registration Honeypot, but it hasn't been updated in 2 years.
