I would recommend to at least put it into boiling water for a short time to remove any potentially harmful bacteria from it. Also cooked meat is a lot more nutritious than raw one.

Yeah I don't know what bacteria there are that could effect ants in meat but you certainly don't want your ants to be salmonella or botulism carriers cook your meats :D
