    We've never known it to fail. We use it mostly in the house, but there's no reason it wouldn't work in a car. After all, they always have a nest somewhere to take the poison back to...

You can accelerate things a bit by taking damp sugar with your finger and smear on the holes, so they'll investigate sooner. They'll enter, snip off pieces of the poisoned cotton and take it back to their nest, wherever it may be, and poison the other ants and the queen. It'll take a few days, but they'll be gone. (BTW, this works in houses also.)
    I'm going to save this for future reference. Glad it worked and thanks for the sage advice Earl!
