Filter incoming ARP requests

Hi forum, I'm seeing a lot of ARP request packets ("who-has ... tell ...") in the guest VM, I suspect this is because of a larger VLAN and many unused IPs.

Any solution to filter out the ARP broadcast packets flooding into VMs?

I'm using PVE 7.4 in bridged mode.

Thank you in advance.
