The zones of inhibition were measured with mm scale and found in the range of 6 mm to 17 mm. The result reveals that methanolic extract of both plant posses anti-bacterial activity. These plant extracts may prove their promising role as antibiotics and may help to overcome the problem of resistivity against many pathogens.
