What do you mean by "working". If you mean closing when its triggered, are you triggering them yourself to test them (otherwise how would you know)? If so, you would be decreasing their lifespan which could be why they're dying while digesting.

If you're cutting them off, they shouldn't be causing any problems. My flytraps eat ants all the time and the only thing I've noticed is they tend to bleach out the coloration inside the trap where they were digested. Must be your specific ants, or your specific plant as Veronis said.
