They definitely do affect server load. I've had as much as 700 online at once. Nowhere near 90K, and 700 alone was enough to use up a core.

They don't generally follow images and so forth, so that reduces the load as opposed to an actual user browsing. Servers can handle a surprisingly large amount of traffic with relatively modest hardware nowadays, but 90K bots is... wow. I'd be curious as to who your host is. I'm impressed.

Sounds like the suggestions above for Cloudflare may not be a bad idea.
