Look at Content > Site Content > All Pages and then choose a secondary dimension of Network Domain. Apply an advanced filter, including bounce rate > 75%. If you try different filters to include specific pages one by one. Look at / and other high traffic pages, you may find something is scraping your page(s) a lot (and activating the JS) from the same domain and bouncing. Most bots are excluded because they don't activate JS, and therefore aren't polluting the data.
Bounces are hits that are "1 hit and quit", not coming from any referrer and not appearing to go to another page in 30 minutes. This behavior could also be someone visiting a lone bookmarked page, but a high bounce rate for one domain as a whole may indicate they are scraping or hitting your page to get something. If that same domain with the high bounce rate has a very low average time on site (less than 10 seconds), it is likely something automated is hitting your site.
If you look at the last month of traffic, you may have some higher pageview & high bounce-rate traffic, but you will likely notice some traffic that all seem to hit you exactly 52 or 30 times each. Those are not likely human visits. With such a dramatic change, you might find one or more domains hitting your site a lot, with a bounce rate of 95-100%.
