The aim of the present study was to investigate the anthelminthic activity of vegetable fixed oils, grapeseed and linseed oil using adult earthworm, Pheritima posthuma. The oils were tested at different concentrations for the determination of paralysis time and death time of the earthworms. Albendazole is used as standard and it was found that grapeseed and linseed oil showed a better anthelminthic activity in comparison with the standard.
