We report here the draft genome sequences of Staphylococcus bacteriophages JBug18, Pike, Pontiff, and Pabna, which infect and lyse S. epidermidis and S. aureus strains. All bacteriophages belong to the morphological family Podoviridae and constitute attractive candidates for use as whole-phage therapeutics due to their compact genomes and lytic lifestyles.
