Urine smell around dryer


I'm getting a very strong urine type odor around my dryer that is worse after the dryer has ran and when it is extremely hot outside. I've pulled out both washer and dryer and removed the back of the of the dryer searching for critters but found no evidence of anything dead. I cleaned the area and checked the lent tube but to no avail. Any ideas?

Maybe use a handheld black light to find the urine, if it is urine causing the odor.
