Not too sure I understand you question/problem correctly?????????
Your hammock is designed to be flipped over and used net-less when no bugs are out (but the net is still attached), and when used with the net side up it has an elastic cord to keep the net up and out/off your face/body correct?
Most hammocks that come with a net already attached (like hennessy and warbonnet) have whats called a ridgeline, this line attaches at the ends of the hammock and is what keeps the net from falling down onto the user.
Most tarps sit a few (anywhere from a inch on up too almost a foot) above one's hammock suspension line and or the ends of the hammock (depending on the size of the tarp and length of hammock used together) having a line come in contact with the edge of the tarp even after being loaded (you in it) can be a possible place for rain water to come down that line and eventually drip on the occupant.
Same applies to a hammocks suspension, you might have heard of the use of drip lines or drip strings, or water break.
Rain has a very hard time moving down a horizontal line, but can move down a line with any degree of downward slope! So can you mod the bug net line to either attach to the end of the hammock, or the hammocks suspension (close to the fabric ends)?
Sorry for the long reply.
