Should I tell them to leave or make an alibi

My nephew's friends (our neighbors) have been coming to the house quite a few times now. They (3 males) would stay the whole day just chatting and playing with computers. It has been for 5 consecutive days. I was nice at first that they would visit , but then after a while it has become annoying. Don't they have anything else to do? I was toying with this idea: the next time they come, will I tell them frankly that, you know, it is not a good idea that you guys stay in the house the whole day or should I make an alibi like, the person you are looking for is not here.

LOl I have the same situation with my cousin and his friend who are always coming to my house .I have a weird feeling that my neighbors are probably wondering waht we are doing over there all teh time but back to your situation .I have always beleived that teh best way to resolve such a situation is to do so directly and probably tell them your reasons

Talk about unwanted guests! Do you want them to come less frequently? Or do you want not to come to your house at all? Are those little kids or in their teens? Teens are easier to talk to. If it were me, the teens I can tell upfront about when to visit. If these were little kids, I would talk to their parents.
