Bug Eggs! Please help me identify

I have found hundreds of little eggs on my Thai hot pepper plant that I

can't identify.  I'm hoping that they are the eggs of some lacewings 
that I have seen flying around my house.

The eggs are yellow with a slight green cast.  They are about 1/2 
milli-meter in length.  A quarter of this length is a filament like 
stalk with the rest of the egg at the end.  Most of the eggs are 
attached to the edges 
of the leaves; the rest are attached the undersides of leaves and to 
the stems.

I just noticed the eggs today and I don't think any have begun to 
hatch.  I hope to be able to identify them before they begin to hatch.

Thanks in advance for all your help.
