- The use of herbal plants are widely knows to be used in the treatment of various infectious diseases throughout the history of mankind. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of extract Muntingia Calabura L at different storage (refrigerator vs. room temperature) and time duration (0,2,4,6,8 days) againts Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus agalactiae for the antibacterial activity. The activity was analyzed using paper disc diffusion method. The study revealed that extracts Muntingia Calabura L in different storage and duration time inhibited growth of the test bacteria to varying degrees (P< 0.05). Muntingia Calabura L stored at refrigerator temperature gives higher diameter zone of inhibition than room temperature (P <0.05). On S. aureus bacteria, the diameter of inhibition zone produced at refrigerator temperature and room temperature with storage time 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 days were (22.46 mm vs. 21.41 mm); (20.26 mm vs. 18.86 mm); (18.44 mm vs. 15.42 mm); (16.21 mm vs. 10.46 mm); (13.46 mm vs. 6.68 mm) respectively. While, on S. agalactiae bacteria were (18.28 mm vs. 17.22 mm) ; (14:45 mm vs. 16.72 mm); (14.22 mm vs. 11.56 mm); (12.48 mm vs. 8.83 mm); (11.34 mm vs. 5.24 mm). From these results it appears that, Muntingia Calabura L stored at refrigerator temperature for 0 days provide better results in inhibiting the activity of bacteria that cause mastitis.
