[SSHd] Increasing wait time?

I'm a bit tired of people trying to break into SSH:

May  6 16:59:23 freebsd sshd[24649]: Invalid user agatha from
May  6 16:59:26 freebsd sshd[24651]: Invalid user cristie from
May  6 16:59:29 freebsd sshd[24653]: Invalid user number from
May  6 16:59:31 freebsd sshd[24655]: Invalid user chamber from

Is there a way to configure SSHd, so that the wait time between login
attempts increases after X failed tries?

Thank you.
