If you don't know how they get in I'd say there's not much chance of 
figuring out how to fix it... though since you're finding bits of foam 
in the gutters I'd check there first.  Look all along the edge of the 
roof where it meets the gutter.  Look for piles of foam on non-rainy, 
non-windy weeks?  Use a FLIR camera to find paths through the 
insulation?  I have no idea.
