We do not recommend pesticides, we recommend mixing a drop of Dawn and water in a spray bottle to discourage pests from your lotus leaves.
There are also symbiotic relationships with other species that are beneficial to your lotus. Your lotus may provide a living and breeding environment for frogs, dragonflies, and damselflies as well as attracting honey bees and butterflies to your water garden.
