The anthelmintic activity of ethanol and aqueous extract of Abies pindrow was studied against earthworm Eisenia foetida (redworm). The ethanolic and aqueous extract was prepared by hot and cold respectively. Albendazole was used as the standard drug. The anthelmintic activity was carried out to study the effect of plant extract on adult earthworm Eisenia foetida (redworm), and noted down the paralysis time (Vermifuse), and death time (Vermicidal). It was found that both ethanolic and aqueous extract of bark of Abies pindrow found to have significant action against adult earthworm Eisenia foetida (redworm) at the dose of 25 mg/ml or more; which may be due to the presence of glycosides, carbohydrates, tannins and saponins in the extract. Thus it can be concluded that the bark of Abies pindrow can be used as anthelmintic agent.
