Little red and black bugs on basil/mango leaves

I've been noticing these sticky patches on my indoor basil and pickering mango leaves. What are they and how can I eliminate them? In case it matters, the basil is edible but the mango is years away from producing fruit. Several months ago, I had trips on the mango leaves, so I wouldn't mind using a noxious chemical on it if needed (to get rid of all pests once and for all).


This is the bug as seen through a cheap USB microscope:


There are these little red dots on some of the leaves as well. Are they eggs or something similar?



In case it helps, here is a video of the creature walking around. The image is a bit more clear than in the images above: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1n7o6hrJrrJZXBZJADqsPWrT63TPxrgZy/view?usp=sharing
