Abstract: India produces four varieties of silk obtained from four types of moths. These are known as Mulberry, Tussar, Eri and Muga. Muga silkworm, Antheraea assama Ww. producing golden yellow silk, reared in outdoors is found only in Brahmaputra valley of Assam. Now-a-days muga silkworm is very much susceptible to bacterial infection called ‘flacherie’ caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and developed certain symptoms such as poor appetite, retarded growth, black body fluid and hanging upside down. Terminalia chebula Retz. (Chebulic myrobalan; Assam —Hilika; Hindi — Harar), a moderate sized or large deciduous tree found in North East India and other parts of the country was evaluated for antibacterial property against P. aeruginosa strain AC-3 causing ‘flacherie’ in muga silkworm. A comparative study on the antimicrobial properties of extracts prepared by different methods was performed in order to choose the most efficient antimicrobial compounds for in vitro as well as in vivo control of bacteria.
