Comparison of Antibacterial Potential Between Honey Bee (Apis Mellifera) From Amfoang And Honey Bee (Apis Mellifera) Cultivated in Vitro Against The Growth Of Staphylococcus aureus Bacteria
Traditionally the community used honey to treat infectious diseases of the injured skin by applying honey on the infected part evenly. The purpose of this study was to measure the diameter of the effectiveness of wild bee honey from Amfoang and bee honey from cultivation on the growth of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and to compare the effectiveness of honey bee from amfoang and bee honey in inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus aureus. Zone Obstacle is a circular area around the cylinder that is formed from the inhibiting power of forest honey bee from Amfoang and honey bee cultivation. The type of this study was a complete experimental experiment using positive paper disk Co-Amoxiclav control. The method used is a cylindrical diffusion method that uses a comparison of two samples, namely honey bee forest from Amfoang and honey bee cultivation in inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. This experiment used four variations of concentration, namely concentrations of 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% and positive control of paper disk Co-Amoksiklav 30µg. Each concentration was made with three replications. The results of this research are processed using Kruskal Wallis non-parametric statistics which show that forest honey bee from Amfoang and bee honey are effective in inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.
