How are you large sites dealing with Spam bots trying to register

I really need some help.
I have a very large VB site.
It has taken me 16 years to get where I am at with it.
I had to resort to manual approval of new users a long time ago to catch the spam bots trying to register.
Within the last year I have been having a large problem with spam bots registering on my site.
I have tried Captcha, I have tried image verification, I have tried the question and answer mode. You name it, I have probably tried it.
I spend over an hour every night proving users to verify they are not spam bots.
I am pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to deal with this.
How have some of you other large VB sites dealt with the spam bots that register on your site and how to stop it form happening?

Please help me.
