Adding insulation baffle between rafters


I want to add those foam egg crate baffles between the rafter bays. My main question is what do I do in the bays that have those turtle vents? Do I just go right over them? I prefer to do every bay

What kind of attic is it? Are the turtle vents located near the eave in this case?

How far are you running the baffles up?

If its a vented attic, no need to run them any further than up past the insulation levels.
