[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Robots.txt file for dev and test instances?

It's come to our attention that the data in the Dev and sandbox instances of ArchivesSpace are being crawled by Internet Archive and Google is providing search results that point to data in these instances.

This is problematic for us because we were using early versions of resource records and also editing data with unreal values.

Is it possible to add a robots.txt file so that these sites are not crawled in the future?
