Yes.
Super-worms also eat the pupae.

But, this only seems to happen with people who do not feed their beetles a lot.
I feed my beetles and worms twice a day, with lettuce & apples.
They never eat the pupae.

But when I went on vacation, my friend only fed them once a day and with only apples.
I came back and I found that there were half eaten pupae all over.

Hope i helped!
