Default Cant find where hamster is peeing?

My hamster stays under bedding all day and I cant figure out where it pees?
Should I dig under its house and see if I can tell? the house is in the corner. Oh these critters, they sure are a mystery.

if you wait until you can smell it, you'd probably be able to figure out where the smell is coming from by sniffing all around the cage to find where the scent is the strongest.

most hamsters pick a corner or single spot to pee in, though some don't.

Dwarf hamsters don’t seem to have definite pee corners like Syrians do and I’ve never managed to find a particular spot that they go to (aside from the wheels which can get pretty gross).

If your hamster doesn’t have a pee corner, it makes it harder to spot clean so you’ll need to do partial cleans instead.

Yeah, i'd scoop out the areas where it smells and replace with clean substrate.

I have no idea where my Robo pees so will have to do the same thing once some areas start to smell.
Well, he did pee in my hand when i tried to do a health check.
