Default bar chewing in detolf

hey!! i have my hamster in the detolf, and he always burrows down to the bottom part of the bars and chews on them, and itís always in the same spot. he doesnít usually burrow so i put the most amount of bedding above that section, but he burrows down there anyway to chew. he wonít burrow anywhere else.

not only is it loud and wakes me up, it canít be good for his teeth. i have plenty of chew toys and things to do in his cage. i try to switch things around regularly to make sure he isnít bored. i sprinkle feed, i use herbs, iím not sure what else i can do. he hasnít always done this, itís only been in the recent couple of months so iím not sure why heís doing it. help would be great!!

Try to prevent him getting to that spot in some way. For example, you could put a clothing peg on the bar or you could rub something that they don't like on the bar like olive oil.

I'd try to block it off, cardboard wrapped over it, wooded chew or stick attached.
Willow sticks are quite easy to buy, and he's going to chew there give then something good for teeth.
Hamsters are very odd but determined to do things, even when it's bad.
