How to filter by a named service provider

Having trouble with bot traffic arriving from San Francisco and am keen to exclude these from my analytics results. I can't seem to figure out how to exclude a service provider properly to stop this. 

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

If it always comes form the same service provider and you receive no real traffic from the service provider then you can exclude using a custom filter and the field is ISP Organization. 

 

Make sure you test this and keep an unfiltered view.

 

Best,
