tiny white flying insects attached on my okra plant leave underneath

Okra    Nigeria

I have an okra plantation site about 1/5 of an acre size having planted the seeds 25 days now and I have noticed some tiny white flying insects attached to the plant leave underneath I have sprayed an insecticide lambda cyhalothrin 5 % 4 days ago but the tiny white flying insects still exist only grasshoppers and bigger insects diminished.
I am afraid that the tiny white flying insects might be dangerous to the plantation. Please help me out of this as a new okra farmer.

These are eggs of red super mites. They are generally harmless. But with increased heat the eggs hatch and red super mites will spread rapidly. This can be diagnosed with apperance of white spots on leaves and cottony web appearance on leaves. Leaves will fall and plant will die if this pest is left untreated. Make sure you spray a jet of water on plants regularly preferably mixed with neem oil. Keeping the plant moist is the solution to this pest.
