It's unusual for male cats to hang around when the female is spayed. I know that even spayed females will spray to mark their territory, so if that's what she's doing, that is probably what's attracting the males. There may be another female in your area who isn't spayed and that also could be why they're hanging around. Since your kitty is elderly, it concerns me that if one of the males is spoiling for a fight, your cat may come out worse for the wear. If you have ANY food outside for her or even birdfeeders, bring it in. Cover your garbage cans, close your garage, pick up any wood piles, tarps or anything else they can use for shelter. I can tell you the cat repellant doesn't work, inside or out. Your safest bet is to keep your cat inside because if the males have no reason to come around, they'll stay away.
