>Can this only be done with all wax foundation?
I have Duragilt in mine.. can I still do this or do I have to extract?
I've only done it on wax foudation, but many others apparently have scraped it off of plastic foundation. Duragilt, is as has already been explained, a special case since the bees won't rebuild on it. You can still crush and strain but you'll need new foundation when you're done.
