We had the experience of having our whole partially-finished basement get infested. I had installed fiberglass insulation between the studs and covered with poly sheeting stapled to the studs. The first winter, a number of mice got in through a gap in the framing. They started a number of families. I would estimate at least 30 or 40. The insulation was soaked with urine. I ended up stripping out the plastic and insulation, but of course the smell remained. I sprayed a bleach solution of 4 parts water to one part normal-strength bleach (5.25%), then dried it with fans. I then did it a second time about a week later. That did the job.

BTW, don't be tempted to use a stronger bleach solution, as stronger than 3 to 1 will break down the wood fibers. I found that out the hard way when I was removing mildew from wood siding.

Thanks for the input

Away on business and just getting caught up.
Before I left, I sprayed a solution of vinegar, water and baking soda on the area. If still stinky when I get back, I have determined that the panel is screwed in and can be removed. I will simply replace and cover with some matching fiber. Keeping fingers crossed. May require cutting and splicing some pex but that is the easy part.

All Seems Good

Looks like the homemade spray mixed worked. So far smells ok and put closet back together for next trip. Thanks to all.

Odo-ban works when used as directed. Full-strength will leave the odor of the product for a while.
