||A study was carried out on cattle’s parasitic ticks, in the north-east area of Benin, from August 2003 to September 2004. The aim was to follow the seasonal dynamics of the various species met in cattle and to determine their preference fixing areas. Thus, ticks were collected took away monthly on 60 bovines coming from two breedings of the work area. Ten species of ticks belonging to the genuses Amblyomma, Boophilus, Hyalomma and Rhipicephalus were identified. With relative abundances of 33.85 % and 32.66 % respectively, Amblyomma variegatum and Boophilus geigyi were co-dominants. The other species met were: Boophilus annulatus (8.83 %), Hyalomma impressum (2.53 %), Hyalomma marginatum rufipes (4.36 %), Hyalomma nitidium (3.05 %), Hyalomma truncatum (5.11 %), Rhipicephalus muhsamae (2.81 %), Rhipicephalus senegalensis (6.32 %) and Rhipicephalus sulcatus (0.47%). Concerning the predetermined anatomical areas, B geigyi was best represented on "ears" and "dorsal area" whereas A. variegatum was dominant on "head-neck" and "ano-genital area". The parts most infested by all species of ticks were: "ano-genital area", "abdomen-legs" and "ears”.
