Not mice - most likely slugs or snails, or even rabbits if you get them. Mice will only eat the seeds, although it's usually beans and peas that disappear. There are lots of methods to try to combat molluscs - copper rings, grit , hunting them at night and removing etc - with varying degrees of success .If it's hard to protect them in the open ground, grow them to a decent size in your pots and plant out. A bigger stronger plant can withstand the nibbling more easily!
