You can try mod_evasive, to limit multiple connections from the same IPs. Otherwise you might want to set your MaxClients setting a little lower. 1000 unique visitors per hour really isn't a lot of traffic unless you're on a server with very little CPU or memory allocation. What you really should do is find out what is causing the load - Apache is more oriented towards memory, not CPU, so it's most likely something on your site(s) that is responsible for the load.

You can also try WHM > CPU/MySQL/Memory usage to see what the top processes are. Anything over a '1' in the CPU column can be a problem.
