I have no clue what is wrong with my code. Could someone please help?

It says there is a syntax error but, I honestly have no clue what the error is.

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

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

you are close. you closed with a semi colon after public int NumFliesEaten That needs to be removed since you are getting and setting that.

Plus you are missing a closing }

So this should work for you

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

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