The Boophilus microplus tick poses great economic and cattle health problems that causes annual costs of one billion dollars in Brazil. The current study sought to investigate preoviposition stage of B. microplus in natural conditions. A total of 300 engorged female ticks were used, in each of the Winter of 1998 and the Summer of 1998/1999, at the Embrapa Gado de Leite, Juiz de Fora, MG, Brazil. On cloudy and humid days, engorged female travelled very little, while at temperatures of less than 15deg. C and relative humidity of 95%, they were practically stationary. They did not travel at night or during rainfall. They travelled in a similar way in the Winter and in the Summer, laying almost the same amount of eggs (being 0.12 g and 0.11 g, respectively).
