Why are 300+ Huawei bots crawling my forum?

Since a few days ago, I've seen a huge increase in traffic to my forum by guest users, all use the same ip range which traces back to china, Huawei to be more specific.

Is there any indication why this is happening, and from a security perspective, should I preemptively ban the whole IP range?
