pesticides, insects, vegan and environment

I will be really interested to hear what others have to say or ideas on this. I just watched a really interesting documentary on how humans are responsible for so much insecticide, and how this is affecting our plants, fruits etc...for example in the US, the threat to the bees is directly impacting the almond trees...other bugs being killed because of the various chemicals spray on plants, is also having a lot of negative effect. i am curious to know more about this...
why exactly are the pesticides used then, if they are so bad? how can we help with these issues, even in the smallest way possible? again i ask about / bring up the honey issue because i'm still a bit confused...was talking to classmates today and they insisted that a 'skillful' beekeeper can smoke out the hive and not kill any bees. and that taking the honey is the least of the problems to the bee colonies collapsing.
but i did see in this documentary how bees were still harmed, wings cut off, and who knows what worse things happen - but i have not seen the entire film yet...
thank you all. this community is a treasure and i love learning from you all
