The antimicrobial activity of methanol extract of Ocimum americanum, Syzygium cumini, Murraya koenigii, Eucalyptus maculata, Lawsonia inermis, Adhatoda vasica, Tridax procumbens, Prunus amygdalus, Aazardirecta indica, Syzygium.aromaticum on E-coli, S. aureus, were evaluated by well diffusion method. The methanol extract of such medicinal plant showed the zone of inhibition against E-coli and S.aureus. The Ocimum americanum slightly inhibited the growth of E.coli and S. aureus with zone of inhibition diameter of 2 mm and 1mm respectively The Syzygium cumini show no zone of inhibition against E.coli and show the 2mm zone of inhibition against S.aureus. No Zone of inhibition was observerd by Syzygium aromaticum ,Lawsonia inermis, Adhatoda vasica and Prunus amygdalus against E.coli while Murraya koenigii, Tridax procumbens ,Aazardirecta indica, Eucalyptus maculate inhibited the growth of E.coli ie.2mm,1mm, 2mm,5mm respectively. The methanolic extract of Ocimum americanum, Syzygium cumini ,Murraya koenigii ,Lawsonia inermis, and Ecuclypttus maculate, Azardirecta indica. Tridax procumbens profoundly inhibited the growth of S.aureus with inhibition zone diameter between 1-5mm. This revealed that Ocimum americanum, Syzygium cumini ,Murraya koenigii ,Lawsonia inermis, and Ecuclypttus maculate, Azardirecta indica. Tridax procumbens, Adhatoda vasica have antimicrobial activity against E.coli and S.aureus. This information may probably used to control the infection associated with these microorganism.
