Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of collected bee venom from Apis mellifera pure Italian race against selected Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains of medical importance. Methods & Materials: Antibacterial activity of bee venom evaluated against nine pathogenic bacterial strains, including Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus pyogenes, Lactobacillus caseai, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterococcus feacalis, Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogene and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Results: The results revealed that the amount of bee venom collected from the pure Italian race during two sessions was 478±10.03 and 575±8.03 mg/colony of venom. Bee venom of bees exhibited antibacterial activity against all five bacterial strains and differs according to the type. Bee venom exhibited antibacterial activity against all five bacterial strains. The minimum inhibitory concentration of BV was determined. These results indicate that BV inhibits the growth and survival of bacterial strains and that BV may be a useful complementary antimicrobial agent against pathogenic bacteria even if bee venom collected by different methods.
