I use Cpanel for my web hosting accounts and you can use the IP DENY feature.

Check to see if your web hosting account includes a Cpanel and look for IP DENY. It will block as may IP's or IP blocks you like. No coding needed.

$ip = GetHostByName($REMOTE_ADDR);
if ($ip == "theirip") exit;

You can also store the banned IP's in a database and handle it that way.

If its only a handful of IP addresses that you want to ban, put them in an array and check against that. I use cpanels IP banning feature myself, its very useful.

You could use the principles in this Spider Trap [webmasterworld.com] as well.
