Why did God send gnats, flies, and locusts?

Yes. The gods of Egypt were empowered by demons.

Pharaoh was so persistent because he felt he was supreme leader not God and wanted to show everyone he was still in control.
Why would God introduce plagues if Pharaoh would just harden his heart?
God is fully aware of the fact that a simple request will not convince Pharaoh that he should let the Israelites go. In fact, he explicitly informs Moses that Pharaoh will refuse the request.
