The fungal members are not only treacherous plants and animals, but also damages the other cells (Bacterial) by exhibiting the exploitive activity. The antagonistic activities of fungal compounds on Escherichia coli and Lactobacillus have reported in this progression. Aspergillus species were isolated from decayed fruit sample and inoculate on Czapek media and the fungal compounds extracted. The antimicrobial sensitivity is processed by placing fungal compounds on E.coli and Lactobacillus cultures by using well puncher method. The inhibition zone is observed with different concentration after one day period of incubation, inhibitory zones obtained with different diameters in length.
