why are third order reactions and higher less frequent?

The probability that three reactants will simultaneously collide with enough energy and the correct orientation is low.

Termonuclear reactions and above are uncommon because all of the present molecules have to simultaneously collide with each other with enough energy and the correct organization in order to produce a reaction.
