Overwintering Pupae Emerge

A couple of days ago, some of the overwintering pupae emerged from the depths of the soil flat where they’ve been hiding. A couple of them have emerged as adults and are flying around the greenhouse. One landed on my hand and it was very skinny. I know, that sounds sort of ridiculous, but I imagine overwintering uses up a lot of reserves. The weather has really warmed up this week which is why they’ve emerged. Next trial, I need to upgrade the heating system if I want to do this year round.
