Well yes BeeGee, I think they do pupate, that's the trouble they seem to be in a cycle of endless production, but they are so good at hiding I can rarely find the little buggers. When I do it's feed time for crooks, catillars and pupae.

What I meant was, by this time of the year - mid winter - they should all be in the pupa stage and not crawling around the place and munching things!
