Discouraging Cats From Using Yard as Litter Box

My son and daughter-in-law just purchased a house and the cats around their house seem to think that it is their own litter box. Is there something that can be put out to repel them, without harming them.

Put moth balls all round the yard or spray it with water & pine oil or sprinkle hot pepper sauce all round it, good luck.

NO hot pepper sauce! It burns their eyes so badly that they will actually scratch their eyes out to get rid of the pain. They don't like the smell of citrus.. So save your citrus peels, chop them up and scatter them around, or spray something citrus on your fence, if you have one.

No moth balls either! They are highly toxic to all animals, humans of any age and the environment (especially if anything edible grows in the yard). They are meant to be used 'only in a closed storage area' for clothing'! They can also cause respiratory problems!

Anything citrus will help greatly to repel the cats but needs to be refreshed after a short time or after rain or snow. Over time the cats simply won't bother entering the yard anymore so placing or spraying the citrus won't need to be done forever ;-)
