    Dampen the spot and try sprinkling a generous amount of baking soda onto the spot. It is necessary to use the baking soda on a damp surface so it soaks up more effectively. Allow the baking soda you have spread over to sit on for several hours, or overnight. Then, vacuum it up.
    Hope that works!

    put vineger in a spray bottle and spray liberally. It works great on cat pee so hopefully they are similar. Follow up with the baking soda above. If you need to hold it up, the plastic wrap that is sticky might be able to hold the baking soda up since it is at an angle. You can try it.

    First, check with animal control if there is any health hazard with breathing it in or coming in contact, since they are wild. I would still wear a mask and gloves. When we had squirrels in the attic, they stunk up the upstairs. I found that they hate mothballs, so we placed some up in the attic. When we were sure we had flushed them all out, we put industrial strength odor absorbers in the attic after sealing all points of entry. Google odor absorber and it will give you links and lots of advice. We removed the mothballs, too, because they stink! So if you use them, keep track of where you put them. We had them tied into old socks, which made it easier to handle. As for the actual cleaning, unless animal control recommends something else, I agree with the vinegar. Good luck!

    I live out on a 5 acre spread. I have several trucks and the squirrels and rats laughed at the exterminator. He left extra strength poison on my porch. They are it all including the plastic box. They pee on everything.

    Yuck!
