Depending on the species biology, you can have all stages at one location at the same time. The most logical way would be continuous generations (as you can see, for example, in many Drosophilidae), but even with a single generation in a year it can be possible. At the time that the last specimens of the 'generation 0' are in the final larval stage, the first larvae to go through pupation may have already emerged, mated and oviposited to start the 'generation 1'.
