:wave: Hi Rosie it was nice to meet you in the UK.

No, God did not create demons, he created the holy angels, however, some of them "fell" with Satan their master as a result of rebellion against the Holy Trinity. These are called fallen angels, namely, demons. God created all things good though because of self will some beings of his created order choose to rebel against His divine order thus we have disorder on earth.

In other words God only created holy angels but some of these holy angels followed the devil thus they are now fallen.
