The only way to do this would be to get them out of there and close off the area. Wire or wooden mesh or even screening would close the area off to them.
To get rid of the odor I suggest Odor Mute it comes as a powder and you mix it up to strength needed. It 'digests' the urine getting rid of the odor.
Pet supply stores carry it
There are sprays you can get that are supposed to work to keep animals off an area and pet supply stores often have those available.
You could also try a motion activated water spray like you see here
Hope this helps you!
