Rafter is split at point it attaches to ridge beam. I was thinking of sistering 2x 2x6 to eazch side with glue and deck screws. But I am unclear on what to do with the attachement point.

Photos to follow with my specific questions:

There has to have been some major roof leakage or insect damage to have caused this much damage.
Sistering is not going to work in this case.
No one knows where you are so it's hard to know what type insect could have caused it.
Any real exterminator can tell you what caused it.
