Bacteria are single cell organisms belonging to a category of life named prokaryotes. Bacteria were the earliest form of life on earth with their origin traceable to billions of years ago. There are thousands of different species of bacteria on earth and are found in four different shapes called bacillus, coccus, spirillium and vibrio.

Bacteria are both useful and harmful to other forms of life on earth. Extremely harmful bacteria make existence difficult for humans, animals and the environment by creating diseases and spreading infections.

Some of the harmful bacteria act as pathogens in creating and spreading diseases including tuberculosis, leprosy, cholera, pneumonia, syphilis, tetanus and typhoid fever to name a few. In plants, harmful bacteria cause wilts, fireblight, and leaf spot.

Harmful bacteria can create infection in a number of modes including through contact, air, water, food and through insect bearing microorganisms. The harmful bacteria can be destroyed by the use of antibiotics. It is also found useful to hamper their growth than destroying them altogether by the use of bacteriostatic antibiotics.
