I'm not sure how long the problem with pollen beetles will last - possibly for most of the period you will want to pick the sweet peas. It has always been a problem for me too.
If you have a garage try putting the vase(s) in there in a cool spot for a few hours. If there is a window place the vase away from the window and shut the door. If there is no window leave the the door slightly open.
The idea is that the beetles will crawl away from the flowers and towards the light. You might have a garage full of beetles but better that than in the house.
