Because although the flies could not lay the eggs on the meat because they were to big to get through the netting they could lay them on the netting knowing that the maggots when they hatched would be small enough to fit through the netting holes to get to the meat therefore being able to nurish themselves.

No, the male flies do not lay eggs. Female flies are larger than male flies. The female flies lay over 900,000 eggs during their lifespan.
