Boğazkale squarely lies within the habitat of the ticks (kene), which are known to be a vector of the serious Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF, Turkish: Kırım Kongo Kanamalı Ateşi or KKKA) in the area. Follow the usual tick prevention strategy of avoiding long grasses and wearing long trouses April through October when the ticks are active; if you nevertheless get bitten by one, seek medical help immediately, as those unfortunate enough to be infected by CCHF have a mortality rate of 10-40% within three days of infection. Experts advice against removing the tick from your body as this may result in its mouth breaking apart — which results in an elevated likelihood for infection and makes it harder for the medical staff to identify the tick.
