insulation in eves?

Hello, I have a ranch style house, the attic is vented by a ridge cap (I think thats what its called ) and two vented openings at either side of the house,there are no eve vents. I am replacing the insulation in the attic and the original insulation was packed into the eves touching the roof,should I do the same or stop the new insulation at the wall line? should I be worried about air circulation down to the eves? thanks for any responce.

Styrofoam Baffles

Baffles are usually used to allow free air passage from your eave or soffit vents to your ridge or gable vents.

Insulation stuffed into eaves is usually done on purpose. In most cases it is because squirrels get into the attic this way or insects. In either case stuffing insulation into your eaves is the wrong way of dealing with the problem. Usually screening that is designed to keep out those things are the best thing to do.
