In-vitro tests of antibiotic susceptibility of 49 strains of Bacillus, which represented six species, indicated that tetracycline, kanamycin, gentamicin, and chloramphenicol were active against almost all strains. Susceptibility to penicillin G, ampicillin, methicillin, and cephalothin was species-related and was high for Bacillus subtilis, intermediate for Bacillus pumilus and Bacillus lichenformis, and low for B. cereus.
