Default Mice Urine Smell

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get the smell of mice or rat urine out of my bunkhouse at the ranch? The smell seems to be getting stronger each trip.

Probably need to mop with some uron gone. Don’t use bleach because that will make a toxic smell.

Your gonna need to get rid of the mice first or anything you use is only going to be temporary. We had mice at the ranch so we cleaned swept and wiped down everything with reqular hosehold cleaner like Lysol mop solution or mr clean. We would set traps and put out moth balls when we left, but it was also the off season. You also have to look for where they are coming in from.

I bought a ozone machine off of the internet for about $70. I use it to de-funk my hunting clothes. Bet one like that would take care of that smell. Think it is a 5000 mg machine.

small bag of charcoal will absorb the smell,,, put a few cubes of it in as amny places as you can,,, mint oil will supposedly keep the mice away, but you need to stop the entrance hole for sure

Donít give the little bastages so much water, and especially no beer!

Use a uric acid deoderizer/ eradicator.

A gallon of gas and a match will do it.

Make one of the bucket traps. Fill it with antifreeze & keep it in the bunkhouse all year. It will do a number on them.
