I have loads of frames and foundation for Modified dadant.

Can I mix these with Langstroth equipment?

If you make an eke to make Langstroth brood box (Langstroth Jumbo)deeper you can use them. or you could put some Langstroth frames into your MD brood box and let your bees make Drone comb under, if you are rearing queens you need more Drones than you will get in a Langstroth, or you could use them for varroa control by cutting off Drone brood
