Again we have been down this avenue before, but I will try one last

It seems quite likely that the bot you have a problem with has the
same user agent string, or a very small variation on the same
string. If so then you can block it just with Apache.

So, can you show us a few lines of logs from your
/var/log/httpd/other_vhosts_access.log of the accesses from the
offending bot(s)?
