Early colonisation of residues by alkali-tolerant bacterial populations (Chitinophagaceae, Beijerinckiaceae, Xanthomonadaceae, and Acetobacteraceae) occurs within a relatively short time frame (Santini et al.
It is a gram-negative, aerobic, oxidase-negative, catalasepositive, nonmotile coccobacillus to rod-shaped bacterium belonging to the Acetobacteraceae family (5,6).
It has been suggested that this disease is caused by microorganisms of the families Acetobacteraceae and Enterobacteriaceae (BUDDENHAGEN; DULL,1967; GOSSELE;SWINGS, 1986; KONTAXIS; HAYWARD, 1978; ROHRBACH; PFEIFFER, 1976).
Bacteria from the family Acetobacteraceae are commonly known as "acetic acid bacteria" and have the metabolic capacity to oxidize ethanol to acetic acid [74].
