How do I keep cats from using our property as a kitty litter box? Thanks.

Try sprinkling cayenne pepper along your fencing as well as the perimeter of your yard. Animals use their sense of smell to determine a spot to expel. The pepper will not hurt them but most surely won't be pleasant on their noses. This method also works for possums, and other pesky animals. Some white vinegar sprayed around your yard helps as well. You can try soaking some rags in vinegar and placing them around your yard as well as around some plants that may have critters nibbling at them. Just remember to soak the rags ever seven to ten days in order for it to work continuously. Hope these tips help. :)
One thing not to do is to scatter mothballs about That smell is far worse than the cat smell. And they are toxic, besides.
There are products you can buy with names like "Pet off" or whatnot that work. Go to your local hardware or WalMart. These are usually in the garden supply section.
I agree with louel 53, and please, do not use black pepper. It is fatal to cats.
Get a Super Soaker and fill it with water and citrus essential oils. Every time you see a cat in your yard spray it. Also water down the area they are using for a litter box. Cats don't like to get their paws wet and will soon move on to dryer pastures. Zig
