You are treating NumFliesEaten as if it was a class, it is not. It is just a variable, an int variable to be specific. Therefore you can't use it as a variable type, your get method also lacks a return type.

If you change the type of the variable to int and declare a return type for the get method like this:

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        private int _numFliesEaten;
        public int GetNumFliesEaten(){
            return _numFliesEaten;
        }
        public void SetNumFliesEaten(int value){
            _numFliesEaten = value;
        }
    }
}

Then your code will pass.

Thanks
