Abstract Ten camels were examined monthly from January to December 1999, in Beer Lehfen North Sinai Gavernorate. A total of 5468 adult ticks of 6 species and subspecies of genus Hyalomma; H. dromedrii, H. ipmeltatum, H. a. excavatum, H. a. anatolicum, H. schulzei, and H. marginatum rufipes, in addition to 115 Hyalomma nymphs' species were collected. Of these, the first 4 types represented about 96.2\% of the total collection. The infestation rate was higher during the period from March to November. The average monthly infestation rate was 22.78+/-3. The large number of the adult ticks were concentrated on tail, brisket, anus, and udder which totaled 68.2\%. Attachment sites of males and females were not significantly correlated in most species. Nymphs were localized in few sites, whereas 91.6\% of the total nymphs were attached to hump, neck, head (ear), and side. H. dromedarii, H. impeltatum, and H. a. excavatum were found on most of the body sites, tail, brisket, udder, and anus, totaling 79.9\%. Males exceeded females in all sites, and were alone on neck and legs. Females were the only stage collected from udder. Both sex of H. a. anatolicum were collected from tail. H. schulzei and H. m. rufipes were concentrated in brisket, udder, anus, and tail.
