termolecular would cause third order reactions, which is when three molecules collide a the exact same time in the exact very specific orientation to generate a reaction. the possibility of this is very low, so it is a rare occurrence
termolecular reactions are rare because all three molecules must collide simultaneously for it to occur. the more molecules needed, the lower the probability of the reaction occurring because they would all need to collide with a certain energy, speed, and in a certain direction to cause the reaction.
