The antimicrobial activity of the methanol extracts of the dried flowering aerial parts of Stachys byzantina , S. inflata , S. lavandulifolia and S. laxa (Labiatae) were studied using the disc diffusion method and determination of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values against Staphylococcus aureus , Streptococcus sanguis , Escherichia coli , Pseudomonas aeroginosa , Klebsiella pneumoniae , Aspergilus niger and Candida albicans .

The extracts, however, did not show any antifungal activity.
