    Just wondering how long Admiral Pupae take to hatch at this time of year. I have 7 Pupae that have been in this state for 4 weeks now. They have changed colour, from mid-brown to black, but I am wondering if they are OK? It’s not that cold here in Cambridge yet. Any thoughts?

    Hi Wendy!

    If the pupae have turned black and you can see the wing markings showing through the pupal casing then they should emerge within hours or days, if however they are just black they are probably dead through disease.
