Abstract:
The aim of present investigation was to study the antibacterial activity of raw honey of three bee species collected from Kannad taluka of Aurangabad district. Honey samples were collected and assayed against four bacterial species by using Agar well diffusion method. All honey samples showed sensitivity against four bacterial species. Zone of inhibition clearly showed that honey obtained from Apis florea and Apis cerana indica was highest antibacterial activity, while honey of Apis dorsata was minimum antibacterial activity. Antibacterial activity showed that Bacillus subtilis was more sensitive than Salmonella typhi, Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
