    What species of wild cat are you having to deal with?

    Can your local animal control live trap them for you?

    I am assuming that they are feral domestic cats. Trapping is possible but you need to have something to do with them then. Very secure fencing with small openings and a wire covering should keep them out.

    Will your local authorities do anything about them?

    It's easy to catch cats in a live trap. Use a bit of tuna or cat food for bait.

    Since you are in (or close) to town you could probably take them to the SPCA or pound. At least they are dealt with humanely that way.
