Nice points. :)

it seems doubtful there are any interventions for insects that will substantially change their quality of life without also making a big difference in the total population

One exception might be identifying insecticides that are less painful than existing ones while having roughly similar effectiveness, broad/narrow-spectrum effects, etc. Other forms of humane slaughter, such as on insect farms, would also fall under this category.
