I'd say leave them as near to their natural environment without leaving them exposed to fall/winter predators.

I've left pupae to overwinter in the garage as close to the garage door as possible - in a screen enclosure of course.

If left outside, also in a screened enclosure but out of direct and constant winds and of course above the natural snow line...

These MOST likely won't eclose before spring.....They are programmed to overwinter in chrysalis form.

Subject: POSSIBLE SPAM [Ctleps-l] advice on 2 GST chrysalis

After raising two giant swallowtails to the point of pupating, I am looking for some advice on what I should do at this point with it getting cold and days are shortening.  I've had some folks say to wait until October to see if they emerge on their own.  However, if they don't, what would be the right way to prep them for the winter?  Some have said to put them in the refrigerator and I'd like some additional input.

Thanks in advance.
