Answer: Sounds more like insect eggs than an adult insect. Eggs are laid in patterns but insects rarely stand in formation such as you describe. I don't know which insect might lay eggs in that pattern and glue them down, but it could be beneficial. Or, it might be destructive. You can suffocate the eggs with a spray of horticultural oil or you can just wait and see what they hatch into.
