Little red and black bugs on basil/mango leaves

7 months ago

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: 

Please advise!
