Kill the rodents. They love to chew off insulation.

Not only do they love to chew on house wiring, their chewing presents a significant risk of causing a house fire. That's one of the main reasons for riding them from your attic or other places through which your electrical wiring passes.

How do squirrels get in your attic?

Squirrels and other rodents are very good at squeezing through tiny holes and cracks, and they like being inside out of the weather. An attic is even better than a hollow tree to a squirrel - they don't understand that you don't want them in your house! Somewhere in the attic, you have a hole or crack that they have crawled into, and have probably chewed it until it is larger so it will be comfortable.
