Of what class is NumFliesEaten an instance of. Because I keep on getting the same errors! Do you know? It is invisible.

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

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

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

    }
}

It should be of type int, which is a primitive type not a class.

public int NumFliesEaten

Also, you need to switch value = _numFliesEaten to _numFliesEaten = value per my earlier answer
