The trouble with all of these is AI development is running ahead of them - reCAPTCHA has been beaten multiple times by AI's as have most of the similar technologies - they are designed to keep out the script kiddies who don't have access to the advanced stuff. As Ian says many bots are beneficial, just not well written so they leave a trace when they visit - best ignore the number.

I think the admin community do a grand job of spotting any oddities pretty quickly
