Probably. But regardless, a few overwintering ants won't bother you anyway. Seal it up in a plastic bag and leave it inside for 24 hours, where it's warm, then you can open the bag (outside) and release any that have survived. Those will not be able to survive.

Ants can oftentimes survive if the temp is reduced slowly, so if you put the item in a bag in the warm room and then immediately put it outside in zero degree weather, they won't survive.

In other words, don't worry about it!
