It depends why they are there. If they are just taking an afternoon stroll, yes they have to leave. If they are chasing a fleeing felon, no, they don't. If they are there to speak to you, no they don't. They cannot search your property without your consent or a warrant though.

How do you keep guest that have caused problems off the property legally?

Someone on property you own or control is there at your sufferance. If you tell them to get off, legally they have to or you can call the police and have them arrested for trespassing (usually; there are some exceptions and legal niceties involved, so you might want to contact a lawyer to find out if any of these could potentially apply in your case). If the lawyer says you can have them arrested for trespassing, inform them as soon as you see them that they are not welcome and that if they don't leave immediately you'll be calling the police. If they don't leave, then do so.
