I find that a candy jar, filled (usually with chocolates of some kind)
draws them to my cube. I try to vary the offerings, Hersheys Kisses,
then Hersheys Miniatures, maybe Jolly Ranchers... They are trained to
recognize the sound of the jar being filled like lab mice. Sometimes
they even buy candy for me to put in the jar - definitely helps out,
because it can be expensive to satisfy the sweet teeth of 8 programmers.
