how can we prevent insects from dying / harm?

I am not sure if this is true. I was reading about how some vegans use honey rather than any other sweetener, as it's what they consider the lesser evil / least amount of harm, because less harm is done if any, for these bees, compared to the sugar taken from sugar-cane resulting in more insect harm.
Also, by that token, a vegan could not eat vegetables because any harvesting or taking from a vegetable garden inevitably causes some of the poor insects to die...
I guess I am asking, as a result of all this, not to mention slip-ups that are inevitable because we are not perfect - is it fair to say..there is no one-size fits all for vegans? we must define it for ourselves personally and well, just do the best we can?
i wish i could avoid cars and plants and whatever else inevitably requires infringing on animal/insects, but in realistic terms this isn't possible
