I have a website where mobile devices are redirected to mobile pages.

Should I exclude these pages from crawlers in my robots.txt file?

No, Google et al like mobile versions of your site (either responsive or mobile specific versions)
Having an indexed version of your mobile site will ensure you turn up in search's on mobile platforms
But remember to have a canonical tag on the mobile versions so you do not get duplicate content penalties
