There's a useful (and amusing) macro you can use to help pin point the exact critter once you're in the vicinity. Unfortunately this macro exceeds the 255 character limit imposed on macros. A workaround is to either leave out the last 3 lines completely or to only include pests you still need (assuming a partially completed achievement).
