Abstract

Antifungal activity of the extracts of whole red velvet mite, skin and fresh haemolymph was evaluated. It was very
interesting to observe that all the above three components registered a good antifungal activity. Of the three
products of mites tested, the fresh haemolymph registered the maximum antifungal activity. Next to the
haemolymph, the alcohol extracts of the skin exhibited a high antifungal activity. A dose dependent variation was
observed in the antifungal activity. The extracts of haemolymph at a dose level of 200 mg/disc showed the highest
inhibitory activity.
