I am getting massive scrapers from Hostgator, theplanet, bluehost and dreamhost servers. I am tired of blocking their server ips manually. Is there anyway to get their ip ranges?

That's not a DDoS, for one, and for another, this is easily answered with Google.
You want to do is a whois lookup. Look up the IP address blocks they own, and you can block them, if you so choose. Probably easier to do from existing IPs than domain name, but that would largely depend on the tool you use to do it.
Not that it's a good idea, but whatever. Kinda like trying to stop spam by blocking all the big hosted email providers, really.
