Web.Config in subdirectory inheriting configuration from root of Website

I have a DNN webite running in DirectoryA underneath that there is a separate application running in DirectoryA\DirectoryB. They both have web.config files and are defined as unique applications in IIS.
It's been a while since I did any ASP.NET development so I don't recall how to stop the web.config for ApplicationB from inheriting certain configuration keys from applicationA.

ApplicationA is a dotnetnuke application running in the Default Application Pool
ApplicationB is a C# web app running it's own Application Pool (folder name)

I understand what's happening I just don't know how to remedy it.

the first hangup in applicationB is below and it's getting that key from ApplicationA's web.config (DNN)
