    Not sure why the others offered the solutions they did, you don’t need to integrate captcha or add a new plugin.

    Go to Settings > Discussion > uncheck “Allow people to submit comments on new posts”.

    Then go to your Posts, select all, choose action “Bulk Edit”, and set Comments to “Do Not Allow”.

    Most pre built themes check whether posts have these settings enabled and will not render the comment form once the settings are changed.
