UV to detect rat urine?

As I mentioned elsewhere, I have a mysterious animal getting into (or possibly living in) my basement. I keep food (boxes of pasta, bags of steel cut oats, etc) in the basement and have NEVER seen any damage. Whatever it is has moved a couple mouse-sized glue traps that I use in the corners to catch camel back crickets -- and may be eating crickets from the glue traps.

I was curious about a trait you mentioned in a pop-up about rats leaking urine almost constantly and the urine fluorescing under UV light.

Would rat urine trails be detectable on a concrete basement floor? If so, can you recommend someplace (a chain store, or somplace) where I might get a suitable UV light?
