How to get rid of unwanted geese?

The main difference between ducks vs geese lies in their difference in size and weight. Geese are much larger than ducks, and they have elegant long necks compared to the average length of a duck’s neck. The average duck, depending on species, weighs anywhere from 2-5 pounds, while geese weigh double that.

A goose is a bird of any of several waterfowl species in the family Anatidae. This group comprises the genera Anser and Branta. Some other birds, mostly related to the shelducks, have “goose” as part of their names. 

Geese can be a nuisance as well. How to get rid of geese has been discussed in an article by Flight Control, a Goose repellent solution.

Balloons, scarecrows, flags, and mylar tape can be used to deter geese from visiting. While one visual deterrent is ineffective, two or three different types per acre of field or water can be effective, especially when used with noise.

Geese hate loud noises, lights in their sleeping areas, long grasses, obstructed access to waterfronts, and grape kool-aid. Yes, that’s true. Geese are on your property to eat or nest, and disrupting what they need to do in both circumstances will help you repel them.

Geese hate the smell of methyl anthranilate more than anything else. Methyl anthranilate is a chemical that naturally occurs in grape juice and is often used as an artificial grape flavoring. Methyl anthranilate is the scent that irritates geese the most.

Does cayenne pepper keep geese away?

Remove the vegetables from the broth and place them in a blender with 1/4 cup of mineral oil and one teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth to separate it into a rep.

The alternative seems to be clear when looking at the Flight Control article.
