Theyre in my backyard. Theyre on the concrete and when they poop and stuff, yeah...its really messsy to clean up. I have to scrape the poop and ughh specially now since its geting really hot, and very smelly. So, what do i do? I was thinking I could cover the ground and their "chair" with newspaper, but they will tear them up and eat them. what do i do?? help. Also, flies are getting attracted to the poo making everything 100000000x worse :(

Sometimes I come through with a hose and spray the poo to make it disintegrate in certain areas. This works pretty well. Hose it down!

No I haven't ever seen them eat newspaper.

If it's on concrete, I'd just hose it down good to clean it off. In your yard, there's not a lot you can do about it being in the grass. If you need to keep them off the concrete, you could always fence off a portion of the yard to make a lot for them to stay it.
