The most effective (though time-consuming) method for a relatively small garden is to check the garden often, hand-remove the caterpillars and kill the ones you find. If you do this regularly, the caterpillar population will usually greatly decrease quickly.

If you want to use pesticides, make sure you choose those that are designed to kill caterpillars. It's even better to ID the caterpillars specifically so you can look up info on that specific pest and choose a pesticide that will be effective.
