Did you forget to remove the '_numFliesEaten' field?

Hello!

What am I missing here? It asks me if I forgot to remove the _numFliesEaten field, but shouldn't it be there?

Can't seem to get it right...

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Frog
    {
        private int _numFliesEaten;

        public int NumFliesEaten {get; set;}

    }
}

thank you in advance for all the help I can get!

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Frog
    {
        private int _numFliesEaten;

        public int NumFliesEaten {get; set;}
      //  get { return _numFliesEaten; }
     //   set { _numFliesEaten = value; }
    }
}

Now that you have created the auto-property, the explicit backing store ("_numFliesEaten") is no longer needed. The compiler creates anonymous backing stores for auto-properties for you.
