How to Kill Caterpillars on Carrots in a Garden

    • 1). Put on gloves and eye protection before spraying carbaryl-based insecticides. Choose a time of day when the temperature is below 85 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent vegetation burn. Select a time when there is no chance of rain for at least three hours.

    • 2). Shake the spray bottle of carbaryl insecticide to thoroughly mix the ingredients. Adjust the spray nozzle to a spray pattern.

    • 3). Hold the nozzle of the spray bottle 8 to 12 inches from the carrot leaves on which caterpillars are feeding.

    • 4). Spray the liquid insecticide onto the carrot leaves to thoroughly coat them from top to bottom.

    • 5). Monitor the carrots for more activity by caterpillars after the application. Wait seven days to spray the carrots again, and do not apply the spray more than six times during the growing season.
