Time required for devitalization of Mucor fragillis, Fusarium moniliforme, Penicillium glabrum and Aspergillus niger germs at temperatures of 22, 37, 60 degrees C was determined under laboratory conditions. All of the tested strains withstood the temperature 22 degrees C during the period of 42 days in Sabouraud agar. At the temperature of 37 degrees C devitalization appeared in the following order: F, moniliforme 14 days, P. glabrum 21 days, M. fragillis 28 days, A. niger 35 days. Temperature of 60 degrees C devitalized all tested strains of micromycetes within 5 hours. F. moniliforme appeared to be the most susceptible among 4 tested strains while M. fragillis was the less susceptible
