Different solutions of royal jelly, royal jelly and rape honey mix, and rape honey (2, 5, 10, 20, and 30%) were contaminated with bacterial suspension of Aeromonas hydrophila (ATCC 7965). Colony counts for each test substances were determined after incubation for 24 h and 48 h and those concentrations which completely inhibited the growth of the test strain were assigned as Real Bactericidal Concentration (RBC) or 100% inhibition. Royal jelly and rape honey mixes possessed a lower antibacterial

Royal jelly, royal jelly and rape honey mix, and rape honey have a potential as alternative therapeutic agents against A. hydrophila.
