Abstract:
The antibacterial effectiveness of the bluebottle fly, Calliphora vomitoria developmental body extracts filtrated by sequent polar solvents were examined. These investigations appeared the presence of bacterial inhibitors within larval, pupal and imaginal body extracts active against both Gram positive (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram negative (Klepsiella pneumoniae) bacteria. These extracts were shown high stability in laboratory condition and, exhibiting high activity against clinical infectious bacteria. Immature extracts with especially pupal extract can be a source of antibiotic like compounds which may be used for pathogenic microbial control for the fight antibiotic resistance.
