I suspect the caterpillar is the larvae of a butterfly so I'm not sure you want to control it. However, it might also be the larvae of a moth. If so, Dipel or Thuricide is safe to use on edible plants and will control caterpillars. Try to have the caterpillar identified before you decide whether or not to control it. Best wishes with your parsley.
