Sorry about your onions. I have had the same trouble with leeks which I only discovered today, and then noticed the chives which have spread themselves about, are also eaten. I think it must be rabbits but didn't know they had a taste for onions! It really is worth carrying on. We grow companion plants for pests and find that strong smelling marigolds, etc, do keep the carrot fly away. Try not to brush against the carrot leaves and try to sow so that you don't need to thin them and you should have success. Moles have been a problem, especially in the lawn, but we battle on .... Good luck.
