Abstract:

Earthworms lives in the soil along with other microorganisms, some of which can cause diseases to main and other organisms. This has made these worms to develop defence mechanisms against these organisms. It has been reported that earthworms can cure a number of diseases. This has prompted studies on using various species of earthworms to test their antimicrobial activities. Hence, the present study was attempted to study the antimicrobial activity of Lampitomauritii against bacterial and fungal organisms which was collected from Musiri area. Results indicate that among bacteria the highest inhibition was shown by Escherichia coli and the least by Vibrio cholerae and among fungi, the highest inhibition was shown by Penicillium citrinum and least by Candida albicans.
