you can create your own form Viewhelper with honeybots included...
it's a very basic implementation but works pretty well


and you may use this validator on your action

if you have any improvements just let me know...

another idea I had would be to not set the target of the form but set 
something like data-tegrat="<encoded target>" then decode and set the 
"real" target with javascript...
should prevent even more bots (who don't fall for the honeypots) but of 
course it would make javascript a requirement :/
